Chilmili Bloody Mary with Tequila
In this recipe, traditional Bloody Mary (made with vodka) meets tequila. That single change in the recipe makes a whole difference in the flavor. Unlike vodka, which gets lost in this heavily flavored, spicy drink, the tequila in the background stands out. It adds a smoky earthiness that can only be found in tequila.
Hot level: Low
1 shot of tequila
15 ml of lime juice
65 ml of tomato juice / Clamato
Half a stick of celery for garnishing
2 squirts of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon of Chilmili Diablito Sauce
If you’d like to rim your glasses with salt, run a lime around the glass rim and twist it onto a plate with salt. You will get a beautiful rimmed glass with salt. Then fill half of the glass with ice cubes. Add the tequila, two squirts of Worcestershire sauce, the lime juice, one teaspoon of the Diablito hot sauce and salt to taste. Mix the ingredients well with a teaspoon or a metal rod, and then add the tomato juice. You can use Casa México's Clamato, which is a mix of tomato and clam juice. Alternatively, you can make your own fresh tomato juice by simply blending one tomato, half a small cucumber, one clove of garlic, a teaspoon of vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Once you added the juice, taste and add more Diablito hot sauce for more heat. Finally, garnish with the celery stick or a lime wedge or any crazy garnish you can think of, we've heard of crispy bacon, chili shrimp, whole chilies, the possibilities are endless!
