Bloody Maria

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in , , ,

Makeshift Bloody Maria because I didn't have Clamato juice or horseradish but honestly, who has those on hand? This delicious brunch cocktail is so much fun to make (and drink)!


Time: 15 minutes


  • 2-4 cans of v8 tomato juice depending on how tall your glasses are 
  • 1/2 jalapeño, sliced
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • 2 shots really good tequila


  1. Dice a few slices of the jalapeño (I used 4) & split the pieces into 2 tall glasses.
  2. Halve the lemon & juice each half into each glass. 
  3. Add 1.5 teaspoons black pepper & the wasabi paste into each glass.
  4. Muddle the mixture in each glass so the wasabi paste dissolves. 
  5. Add the v8 & the tequila & mix to combine.
  6. Add ice if desired, then garnish with a lemon slice & a jalapeño slice, & olives if desired. I also added a fresh peperoncini as a garnish.
