    There is so much to love about a good Bloody Mary. Easy to prep ahead, great for entertaining a crowd, delicious spiked or virgin, and relatively low in calorie, I love making them at home so that I can add in all of my favorite ingredients and garnishes.

    Because let’s be honest, when made right, a Bloody Mary is almost as filling as a meal. That is definitely the case with my over-the-top bacon garnish filled with pickles, salami and other goodies.

    Would you like to try a sip? While I’ve used jalapeño infused vodka, this would be just as delicious with traditional vodka. Heck, it would be great without any vodka at all.

    Spicy horseradish is the perfect balance to the salty pickle juice and tart lemon juice. A little Worcestershire sauce is added for good measure (and umami.)

    PREP: 20 mins
    TOTAL: 20 mins
    Servings: 4


    • 16 ounces tomato juice
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons pickle juice
    • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • kosher salt and/or celery salt (optional to rim the glass)

    Jalapeño-Infused Vodka

    • 1 cup vodka
    • 1 jalapeño pepper (sliced )

    Garnish Stick (optional)

    • 4 slices cooked bacon
    • 4 baby pickles
    • 4 slices salami
    • 4 wedges lime
    • 4 slices lemon
    • 4 slices jalapeño


    • Start by placing the sliced jalapeño pepper in a glass dish and covering with the vodka. Let steep in the refrigerator for 3 days. Alternatively, if you’re in a time crunch, you can purchase spicy vodka or muddle minced jalapeño peppers in vodka then strain.
    • To a glass pitcher, combine strained jalapeño vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, pickle juice, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. Stir well.
    • If you wish to rim the glasses, pour salt and/or celery salt on a small place. Use a lime wedge to moisten the rim of each glass then carefully run the rim of each glass around the salt rub. 
    • Fill each glass with ice then fill with with the tomato vodka mixture. Garnish with optional toppings if you wish before serving.


    I highly recommend making a double or triple batch of the Jalapeño-Infused Vodka and storing it in your refrigerator for future cocktails. It will last up to 3 weeks.
