I’m giving the Bloody Mary a bit of a makeover. A delicious, Italian makeover.
The roasted garlic-infused vodka below is so easy to make, and it's probably the best thing about this drink. Simply roast a head of garlic in the oven, let cool, and steep in vodka for 24 hours. Check out the full recipe here.
2 oz tomato juice (preferably unsalted or low-sodium)
1 1/2 oz Roasted Garlic Infused Vodka
3/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp pepperoncini pickling liquid (or more lemon juice)
5 dashes hot sauce
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Garnishes: pepperoncini, bocconcini (mozzarella balls), cherry tomatoes, rosemary sprigs
1. Add tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire, lemon juice, pickling liquid, and hot sauce to a short glass, stirring to combine. Season to taste with kosher salt and several turns of black pepper. Flavors should be bold and bright. Add ice to the glass, and stir until the cocktail is well-chilled.
2. Skewer 1 pepperoncino, bocconcino, and cherry tomato with a toothpick. Lay the skewer across the top of the glass. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and black pepper. Finish with a sprig of rosemary.
