Here's my first food gift of the holidays! A tasty drink mix that can add some spice to the winter weather.
A Bloody Maria is basically a Bloody Mary with tequila added instead of the traditional vodka. Your recipient could also omit the alcohol for a spicy sipper on the rocks instead!
Spicy Jalapeno Bloody Maria Mix
3 cups tomato juice
1 tsp beef bouillon granules
1/3 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp celery salt
1 lemon, juiced
Zest from one lime
1 lime, juiced
3 tsp cholula hot sauce
1/4 cup pickled jalapeno juice
1/3 cup pickled jalapeno slices
2 Tbsp chopped white onion
Combine all ingredients in a large jar, except for jalapeno and onion. Shake to mix.
Add jalapeno slices and onion to a small food processor. Chop finely, then add 1/2 cup of tomato juice mixture and mix until a puree is formed. Return mixture back to jar, shake to mix.
Place in refrigerator overnight prior to gifting. Wrap with a small bottle of tequila (jalapeno infused is highly recommended) and a fresh lime.
