Spicy Heirloom Bloody Marys with Pepper-Infused Vodka.

Hello again, my dearest darlings!

I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t been around much lately. And for that, I am super crazy time sorry. I promise a new post soon, with lots of explanations as to my absence…because things are off-the-wall crazy bonkers around here. For realizes.

For now, I just wanted to briefly share a fabulous recipe with you that I developed for Lipman Tomatoes recently! It’s basically the bomb dot com.

I was asked to develop an original recipe to commemorate the launch of Lipman Kitchen, a new recipe site which showcases original recipes using Lipman’s gorgeous tomatoes. Since I’m essentially a tomato fiend, I jumped at the chance to get in the kitchen and work on some fabulous tomato-centric recipes.

After plenty of recipe writing, testing, and straight-up gorging on tomatoes (with generous sprinkles of fleur de sel, of course!), I finally settled on a recipe where the tomatoes could truly be the star: a killer Bloody Mary. Of course!

Bloody Marys are basically synonymous with brunch, and by default, my life. I live for tomatoes, and brunch-time shenanigans make life worth living, as far as I’m concerned. Using Lipman’s gorgeous Vintage Ripe Heirloom tomatoes, I made a simple, spicy and addictive tomato juice blend that was good enough to down by the bottle itself. But I couldn’t stop there. You know me.

I decided to infuse my own vodka with a blend of four different types of hot chili peppers to up the spice quotient even more. Literally, there’s no such thing as a too-spicy Bloody Mary. It’s impossible. It just can’t be done. After allowing the vodka to infuse for a few days, I strained it, combined it with the fresh Vintage Ripe tomato juice, plenty of Worschestershire sauce, fresh lemon and lime juice, and a smidge of Tobasco. Spice city, USA!

I serve up my Bloody Mary with a giant stalk of celery (of course!), plus a veritable garden of garnishes on a skewer: lime and lemon wedges, pepperocinis and mini kosher dill pickle slices. Now if that doesn’t sound like a perfect Sunday morning drink, I don’t know what does.

I had an amazing time creating my ultimate Spicy Bloody Mary for the Lipman Kitchen website, and I hope you’ll head on over and check out all of the other fantastic recipes that other bloggers created using Lipman’s gorgeous tomatoes!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new post (FINALLY!), lots of exciting news, and a new recipe for you to feast your eyes on. Hooray!

    Oh I love the idea of that pepper infused vodka. I can imagine that it’s awesome in this recipe and in about a million other cocktails!
