Spicy Bloody Mary
Total Time: 0 hrs 10 mins
Hands-on Time: 0 hrs 10 mins
Makes: 1 servings
2 ounces vodka
3 ounces organic vegetable juice, such as R.W. Knudsen Very Veggie®
1 ounce stout or other dark beer
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon caper or dill pickle brine
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1/8 teaspoon Simply Organic Chipotle Powder
1 pinch Simply Organic Ground Cardamom
1 pinch Simply Organic Garam Masala
1 pinch Simply Organic Black Pepper
1 pinch celery salt
1 medium-large radish
1 small Spanish olive
- Salt the rim of a highball glass and fill with ice. In a tall shaker, mix all ingredients, then fill with ice. Seal and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.
- Strain the mix over the ice, float the radish “eyeball” garnish on top and serve.
- Using a melon baller or apple-coring tool, carve a hole the size of the Spanish olive out of the stem-end of the radish (it looks most “ghoulish” if the radish’s root is still attached). Stuff the olive, pimiento-side out, into the hole in the radish. Repeat as needed for additional drinks.

For the Garnish:
This recipe multiplies well to make large batches. Multiply the above ingredients by four or eight and stir in a pitcher with ice, rather than use the shaker. It's also delicious without the alcohol, simply omit if desired.
Serve with a fresh fennel frond or lovage to use as a straw.
