Tequila Maria

This Tequila Mary variation is one of several named Maria because of its use of tequila instead of Vodka. It differs from the Bloody Maria (not featured in the New York Bartender's guide) with its smaller proportions as it is served in an Old Fashioned glass and includes cilantro.

I like that the smaller glass means you can sip this drink and appreciate the tequila. For this reason I chose Tres Agaves tequila, which is amazing! This is a high quality blanco tequila with great herbal flavors you can enjoy neat. If you have fresh cilantro, use it as a garnish.
  • 2 oz. silver tequila (Tres Agaves used)
  • 4 oz. tomato juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. horseradish 
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • 3-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • celery salt to taste
  • pinch of cilantro
  • lime wedge
Combine all ingredients except for lime wedge in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with lime wedge and (optional) cilantro.
