i have the day off, it’s my sunday funday! i have been hankering for a bloody mary, so I made one. I like making this cocktail with beer so that it isn’t as heavy. i have a good part of a case of  flying dog dead rise in my basement & decided to make my bloody mary with it. i had to use it considering it is a lightly hopped beer made with old bay seasoning (which was made to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this maryland seasoning sample)! i made it and it was the most simple & delicious bloody mary i have ever had. so, i had to share the recipe.

makes 2 cocktails

1/2 bottle flying dog dead rise
1 small can tomato juice
6 dashes worcestershire sauce
6 dashes pete’s garlic hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon old bay seasoning, plus more for rim
1/4 lime, juiced plus 2 wedges for rim/ garnish
5 ounces vodka, tito’s is my fav

. in cocktail shaker, add all ingredients except for vodka
. add a cup of ice & shake
. rub glasses with lime wedge, sprinkle rim with old bay & pour out any old bay that made it’s way into the glass
. fill each glass half way with ice, add 2.5 ounces of vodka to each glass
. top each glass with 1/2 of bloody mary mix , give it a stir & garnish with lime wedge
