Smoked Bloody Mary Recipe

So I would not have thought a Smoked Bloody Mary cocktail would taste that great but as it turns out, I was wrong (this is a very rare occurrence). I can honestly say this is now my favourite smoked cocktail recipe!

Smoked Bloody Mary Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (250ml) thick tomato juice
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vodka
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt (regular salt will suffice)
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • Celery heart, to serve
  • Black pepper, to serve
  • Pinch of wood chips (for the cocktail smoker)

Which wood chips?  Well not only does hickory woodchips elevate the taste of this already delicious cocktail, we have also tried combining dried rosemary and hickory woodchips and this has proven absolutely delectable!

Smoked Bloody Mary Method:

To make your delicious Smoky Bloody (or virgin) Mary recipe use the Sixpence Alchemy Cocktail Smoker. Combine tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce and salt in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Add wood chips (and dried rosemary if you want to test this variant) to the cocktail smoker’s chamber. Place smoke infuser hose into the cocktail shaker above the liquid OR place the hardwood cocktail smoker atop the shaker. Light the smokers chamber to ignite the wood chips. Smoke will start to swirl in just a few seconds. Wait until the shaker is filled with smoke, remove the hose or smoke top, cover the cocktail shaker with its lid and vigorously shake cocktail for 10 seconds to mix the smoke through all the liquid

Pour into tall glasses and serve with black pepper and celery.

Happy Smoking!

History of The Bloody Mary

Where Did the Bloody Mary Cocktail Originate?

Here is another cocktail whose origin is disputed. Like the Sidecar cocktail the origins of this cocktail are hazy. Fernand Petiot is often credited as its creator. Supposedly while working as a bartender in Harry’s New York Bar in Paris during the 1920s.

However it seems he simply added spicy flavours to a pre-existing and well known vodka and tomato juice drink while working at the St. Regis Hotel in New York in the 1940s

Funny side story - The USA has claimed January 1st as Bloody Mary Day
