Sunday Brunch Cocktail | The British Mary

Sunday Brunch Cocktail | The British Mary

Ever had a bloody Mary with gin? Me neither, until today.

It seems like gin is making a resurgence these days. Just look at all of these brands.

I used Bombay Sapphire, and the botanicals in the spirits added an interesting and tasty dimension to this Sunday brunch cocktail. I will be making this again.

The British Mary

Ingredients

2 ounces gin
4 ounces low sodium tomato juice
1 T lime juice
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp prepared horseradish
Minced jalapeno to taste
Pinch of minced garlic
Pinch of celery salt
Squeeze of Sriracha sauce, the amount is up to how spicy you want your cocktail. I use quite a bit. =)

Garnish with pickled beans, lime wedges, celery stalks, cherry tomatoes, green olives, cocktail onions, bell pepper slices, or whatever else you can think of. After all, it's a salad in a glass, right?

You can also coat the rim with Old Bay seasoning. 

Instructions

Add all of the ingredients to a large glass. Stir. Pour into an ice filled glass. Garnish. Enjoy.

  1. I finally tried a bloody mary a few years ago, and immediately fell in love! I will for sure have to try a British mary now. I love your addition of jalapenos! Take care, Terra
