Suffering through your first hangover of the New Year?
You know, we reckon that means you need a little bit more of the dog that bit you -- or at least the drink of choice for brunchers and those of us who may have partied a bit too hard.
Happy National Bloody Mary Day! Celebrate with our:
DIXIE BLACK PEPPER GRILLED BLOODY MARY
1/2 onion, peeled
2 tomatoes, cut in half
3 stalks celery
48 oz. tomato juice
1 1/2 lemons, juiced
1 tbsp. A1 sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
1 tsp. celery salt
2 oz. Dixie Black Pepper Vodka
4 oz. grilled Bloody Mary mix
Suggested garnishes: meat stick, celery, onion, lemon, okra
Prepare a grill over medium-high heat. Add onions, tomatoes, and celery over direct heat and grill 5-6 minute per side to char. Move to indirect heat and cook until onion is tender. Remove from grill, cool, and roughly chop.
Add cooled grilled vegetables with remaining ingredients and purée in a blender until smooth. Keep cold, mix stays well 7 days when covered and chilled.
Combine vodka and mix over ice, stir. Garnish and serve.
