With strong Russian flavour plus sour flavoured ingredients like tomato, this is a perfect cocktail for you. Minus the use of sweeteners, you can make one with a more natural sweeter taste that would even reduce your sugar or calorie intake.
Ingredients: For the Bloody Marys:
Juice of 1/2 lemon (save squeezed lemon to use for rimming glasses)
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
2 cups tomato juice
2 ounces vodka (or more!)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper
Splash of sriracha
4 teaspoons Everything Bagel Seasoning
For the Garnishes:
Chopped Bell Pepper
Make the Bloody Marys: In a cocktail shaker, muddle lemon juice, horseradish and celery seed until celery seed is crushed. Pour in tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and sriracha; stir until well combined.
Pour Everything Bagel Seasoning onto small plate. Rub the rims of two glasses with lemon; dip and twist into seasoning mixture until rims are covered in mixture. Fill glasses with ice; pour Bloody Mary mixture over ice. Garnish as desired and serve immediately.
Mocktail (non-alcoholic): If you wish to have a delicious non-alcoholic version, please feel free to take the alcohol out and follow the same procedure.
Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
