SKYY Balsamic Bloody Mary
Never miss a local story.
2 oz SKYY Vodka
4 oz tomato juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp Frank’s Redhot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp celery seeds
Coarsely ground black pepper and salt to taste
Combine all ingredients except the balsamic vinegar in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice. Shake gently. Strain into a chilled highball glass over ice. Adjust seasonings to taste. Float the balsamic vinegar on the top of the drink and garnish with lemon.
Mix tip: The balsamic didn’t float on the top when I made it. But from what I could tell it didn’t change the taste too much. This is one of the best Bloody Mary’s I’ve ever had.
2 oz SKYY Vodka
1 tbsp light cream
1/2 oz amaretto
Combine all ingredients and shake with cracked ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Mix tip: If it’s a shooter you want then the amounts in this recipe were enough for one. Double the vodka, add 3 oz of cream and 1oz of amaretto to fill a cocktail glass.
