My Spicy 'Bloody Shrimpwreck' Cocktail
Ah...The Bloody Mary. It has been my experience that people either like or, don't. For those who do, I've taken the traditional Bloody Mary, and blown it completely out of the water, well so to speak. And just how do you do that? Use Picante Calamto Tomato Cocktail as the mixer, add a skewer of shrimps, a very healthy squeeze of the juice of a fresh lime, finely crushed dried red chili pepper, and of course, don't forget the Worcestershire sauce, that's how.
What you'll need...
Tall tumbler style glass
Shot glass or jigger
Stir Stick or spoon
Picante Clamato Tomato Cocktail Juice as 'mixer'
About 9 (+ or -) cooked medium sized shrimps
Celery, rinsed leafy stalks
Dried finely crushed red chili pepper
Fresh milled peppercorns
To a freezer frosted tall and large tumbler glass add two sinewy leafy stalks of celery. Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 of a large lime. Put about 9 shrimps on a skewer and place in glass along with the celery. Add ice. Add two very healthy jiggers of vodka. Fill remainder of glass with 'mixer' leaving just enough room to garnish with two wedges of a lime and 2 to 4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Now shake on some of the dried crushed red chili and add some fresh milled black pepper. Stir, add straw and enjoy. (Click on photo to see full size.)
Bring a tray full of these out for a Sunday brunch and watch your guests eyes! They'll be saying forget the rest of the brunch and just keep bringing these out!
Seriously though the chili is dried and crushed 'birds eye' variety. A chili that really delivers a kick together with the Picante Calmato. I would advise subbing on this. Most of the bloody mary mixers, at least for me, are just way to thick and just plain nasty tasting.
Ooops...Meant to say "I would advise not subbing on this", with regard to the Pincante Clamato. I'm sure you got it anyway, but I always like to clarify. Unfortunately this site doesn't allow you to edit a day after posting, or after so many hours, I don't know which, or I just would've edited it.
