Smokin' Texas Mary

Another Bloody Mary Variation, and one that really has a right to exist as a distinct cocktail, is the Smokin' Texas Mary. This cocktail has smoke from barbecue sauce, and the tangy flavor of the sauce really changes the dynamic of the tomato juice drink.

I picked Jack Daniel's barbecue sauce, which adds the flavor of the whiskey to the drink that is only fortified by flavorless vodka. I quite liked it and found that a bacon shot rim from Dimitry's Bacon Bloody Mary mix was a useful addition. The only other change to the classic Mary is the addition of a jalapeno pepper.
  • 3 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. barbecue sauce (Jack Daniel's used)
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • 3-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • freshly ground pepper
  • tomato juice
  • pickled jalapeno pepper
  • lime slice
Combine all ingredients except tomato juice, jalapeno pepper and lime slice in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a highball glass. Fill with tomato juice and stir. Garnish with lime and pepper (celery stick optional.)
