A Beverage & Appetizer in One

These spicy bloody Marys are the perfect treat to serve for any event to liven things up a bit. With sweet candied bacon, chili seared shrimp and crunchy fresh celery, this is far from any ordinary store bought Bloody Mary mix and vodka. It truly is the best of both worlds between beverages and appetizers.

Spicy Bloody Marys

If you’ve tried a decked out bloody Mary before, you know it’s all about a high quality homemade mix and lots of tasty toppings. Depending on your taste and preference, you can really take this in any direction you want. I like to use these long wooden skewers so as to not limit myself in my quantity of toppings. Because a toothpick just won’t cut it.

Here’s what I’m working with on my wooden skewer:

  • candied bacon – bacon baked in the oven and finished with a sprinkle of brown sugar – also known as crack.
  • cherry tomato – a little burst of freshness never hurt no one
  • shrimp – seared in butter and coated with salt, pepper and chili powder, this is a fantastic bite on its own
  • cheddar cheese – a thick cube of your favorite cheddar goes perfectly with the bacon and tomato
  • something pickled – I love to use pickled peppers, pickles or olives for a briny, salty taste – these sweet cherry peppers are a favorite of mine

As for the homemade tomato mix, feel free to adjust the measurements of hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings according to your preferences in heat.
