Cinco de Mayo 2018 – Bloody Maria ver 2

I haven’t made this drink in ages but, with a week to go until Cinco de Mayo, it seems appropriate to repost this Mexican version of the vodka based Bloody Mary. Besides, I needed to crack open the can of tomato juice I had in the basement, to make gravy with. I didn’t have any horseradish but seafood sauce is a great substitute. I’m a lightweight when it comes to alcohol so you can double the amount of tequila.


Bloody Maria – serves 1

1 oz tequila
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3 dashes hot sauce ie. Cholula, Tapatio or Frank’s Hot Sauce
1/2 tbsp seafood sauce (or 1/2 tsp horseradish)
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
6 oz tomato juice

Garnish options
Lime wedge or wheel
Celery stalk
Coarse salt for rimming the glass

Decorate the rim of a tall glass with salt by rubbing the edge with a lime wedge and then dip into salt.

In a shaker filled with ice, combine all the ingredients except the garnishes, and shake until well chilled.

Strain into a tall glass filled with ice.  Garnish with a lime wedge.

    1. I would have made a Michelada but I didn’t have any beer in the house, let along a Mexican lager. It has clamato (or tomato juice) and hot sauce so is very similar to the Bloody Mary/Maria or Bloody Caesar . A refreshing summer time drink. 🙂

  1. Sounds like a nice change from vodka! I happen to have a bottle of tequila, so next time I know what to do when I feel like Bloody Mary!

    1. The alcohol gets masked by the tomato juice and other condiments so I think it’s a good choice for those, like me, without much of a palate for various alcohols. I made a fresh strawberry margarita with the tequila as well, which I’ll post shortly. 🙂
