Venomous Miami Mary

Spicy Bloody Mary

The society consulted food and beverage connoisseur, Miguel Hernandez of Viceroy Miami for this fiery recipe. The unique drink got its name and flavor from Venom Salt, a blend of all-natural sea salt and Trinidad Scorpion Pepper. But be warned! This Mary boasts more than just a bite.

How to make it

Servings: 1

  1. Add the vegetable juice, vodka, Worcestershire, salt, horseradish, black pepper, lemon juice and relish to a mixing glass or cocktail shaker.
  2. Using a smoking gun filled with cherrywood sawdust, smoke the vegetable juice mixture.
  3. Add ice to the mixing glass. Cover and shake to chill. Fill 1 Collins glass with ice. Strain the vegetable juice mixture into the glass.

  5. Ingredient Note: Venom® Salt is my hottest friend at the bar now days! This blend of all-natural sea salt and Trinidad (one of my first cities working as Hotelier) Scorpion Pepper boasts more than just a bite … a little pinch leaves a lasting sting! Add it to any cocktail, like a Bloody Mary, for a fiery kick, but consider yourself warned!
