Brunch. It’s one of my favorite activities. Whether I’m hosting, going to a friends, or going to a restaurant; it’s one the best ways to kick off your Sunday. I love the combinations of food and sweets, and I love that it’s socially acceptable to have a cocktail (or two) at 11am.

Mimosas are usually my go-to brunch beverage for a few reasons, but it’s nice to switch it up. My experiences with Bloody Marys usually involve an overly salty and “sludgy” mixed drink that I take a few sips of and pour out. Most Bloody Mary mixes are also ruined for us vegetarians because they contain worcestershire sauce which has anchovies as an ingredient.

Recently, I’ve decided that I need to give Bloody Marys another shot though, so I started making my own mix using tomato juice, fresh citrus, herbs, and spices. The result is a fresher, lighter drink. I also love that you can control the amount of salt and the amount of heat.

Speaking of heat; who doesn’t love Sriracha? It is absolutely delicious in Bloody Marys. Wouldn’t you know, they now make Sriracha flavored vodka, so I had to give it a shot.  It adds a great chili-garlic flavor without being too hot.

So, next time you brunch, or are just in the mood for a Bloody Mary, make your own mix. It’s more fun to personalize the flavor and it’s great for entertaining.



Sriracha Bloody Mary


1 1/2 oz UV Sriracha Vodka
4-5 oz Low Sodium Tomato or Tomato/Vegetable Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce (the generic store brand I found didn't contain anchovies)
1/2 tsp horseradish (optional)…for those that like an extra kick!
Pinch of Celery Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
Pinch of Cumin

Garnishes of your choice
ex: celery, green onion, cheese cubes, lemon and lime slices, dill pickles, giardinara, olives, bacon, salami


Measure all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Give it a few shakes and pour over ice. Add your garnishes and enjoy!


*If you can't find UV Sriracha, you can substitute any vodka and Sriracha hot sauce.

    Oh my goodness! I had to comment on this one, because I just read an article in The Food Network Magazine about Bloody Marys, in which Alton Brown is quoted as saying that “Bloody Marys are a drink, not a meal – let’s not forget that”, or something close to that. And I actually said out loud, “Hey!” – in offense, because I actually LIKE Bloody Marys to be a little more meal-ish. If I’ve had a long day – you know, VACATIONING, or something of the like, and dinner is a ways off, then I’ll order a Bloody Mary to tide me over – because it’s a drink and an appetizer all in one (I always say a little prayer that the bartender feels the same way and will throw in a big hunk of celery and extra olives.) All this to say, I love your garnish. It’s the appetizer part of the Bloody Mary and I think a cheese cube is GENIUS. I like Alton Brown, I just don’t like his opinion on the Bloody Mary. Your version much better! :)

      How disappointing is it when you order one and it just comes with an olive? Bloody Marys are all about the garnishes! Thank you so much! Have a lovely day!

    If I can’t find the Vodka the sriracha how much sriracha sauce do I add to my Bloody Mary?

    1. Lindsay says:


      It just depends on how spicy you like your drink. I would start with a very small amount, maybe 1/2 tsp or 1 tsp and add more if you’d like. Have a wonderful day!

    I had no idea there was a sriracha flavored vodka on the market. Yum! This bloody Mary looks amazing.

    1. Lindsay says:


      There are actually a bunch of chili vodkas out now! Thanks so much and have a wonderful day!

    I don’t get up until 12 on Sundays. The day usually greets me with a blinding headache from the night before. I think this bloody mary would be perfect with an egg yolk. Gonna try next weekend.

    I not sure if I have ever had a bloody mary. Will have to try this!

    1. Lindsay says:


      You should definitely give them a try! Let us know if you do :).
      Have a wonderful day.

    I’ve been lately into Bloody Marys too! There’s a restaurant down the street from me that has a Mezcal version that is NUTS.

      That sounds really good! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
