We’re back with another delicious collaboration from our friends at 505 Spirits and Jillipepper to bring you this tangy, subtly sweet and slightly spicy twist on the Bloody Mary. If you tried our Spicy Green Maria, you will find this a more mellow and complex, but equally delicious twist on the New Mexico Bloody Mary. And it is so easy to make!
Anna at 505 Spirits says, "Jillipepper’s, locally made NM Red Chile Pineapple Salsa, pureed in your blender, is a perfectly balanced Bloody Mary “mix” here. Our D’UVA 1 Brandy instead of vodka will make you wonder why you ever had a Bloody Mary with vodka to begin with. And our Red Sauce Red Chile Liqueur introduces more of that earthy NM RED flavor.
We combine Jillipepper’s Hot Fiesta Pepper (we love this on practically everything!) with sea salt for the perfect rim. For garnish, dip some fresh pineapple and the veggies of your choice in this amazing blend for the perfect accent to this a salad in a cocktail! It’s practically health food, right?"
PREPARE THE GLASS & VEGGIE GARNISH
Mix 2 parts Hot Fiesta Pepper with 1 part sea salt (or kosher salt) in a jar and shake it up.
Pour onto a small plate. Rub rim of glass with a lime wedge and dip in pepper/salt mixture. Slice up your pineapple/veggies and dip the sides of some in the salt as pictured. You may want to make extra of the garnish and serve on the side, as you may want more than you can fit in and on your glass.
Once your glass is rimmed, put a few large ice cubes into the glass.
MAKE THE COCKTAIL
Combine D’UVA 1 Brandy, Red Sauce Liqueur and pureed Jillipepper Pineapple Red Chile Salsa in a shaker and shake it up.
Pour over the ice into the prepared glass. Garnish to your heart’s content and SALUD & ENJOY!
