The Bloody Maria is Perfect for Cinco de Mayo Brunch
You can spice up a Bloody Mary with all the horseradish you can fit in your glass, and you still won’t achieve the zing and complexity of a well-made Bloody Maria. Combining the peppery, vegetal notes of blanco tequila with tomato juice, hot sauces, and muddled jalapeño, this amazing spin on the traditional Bloody is a bold, savory flavor bomb. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo, or whenever you want a spicy eye-opener with serious depth of flavor.
