Ultimate Bloody Mary Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Gourmet garnishes make THIS my ultimate Bloody Mary! Ingredients For the Bloody Mary Seasoning:(makes enough for numerous drinks) 1 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano 1/8 teaspoon dried basil 1/8 teaspoon white pepper For the Candied Bacon 1 pound bacon 4 tablespoons brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper For the Shrimp 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined olive oil salt/pepper For the Drink: (per drink) 1 1/2 ounces vodka 7 ounces V8 juice 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce squeeze of lemon 1/2 teaspoon tabasco (I like a pinch of horseradish too, but only if you like spicy) 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper celery stuffed olives ice Instructions For the Bloody Mary Seasoning: You can skip this step and use creole seasoning if you wish. This mix is enough for several drinks so seal and store any remaining spice mix. Simply blend all the spices together. For the Candied Bacon: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking sheet with foil. Place a greased rack over the foil and lay the bacon strips side by side across the rack. You can squeeze them together but avoid overlapping if possible. Mix the brown sugar and cayenne together, then sprinkle over the top side of the bacon slices. Bake the bacon in the oven for about 20 minutes. You're looking for golden brown and still slightly pliable. The bacon will firm up after it cools. Remove and let the bacon set for a minute. When cool enough to handle, gently lift the bacon and weave onto tall skewers while the strips are still pliable. For the Shrimp: Place the peeled and de-veined shrimp on a broiler-proof sheet and brush both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Place under broiler for a few minutes and watch carefully. Turn when you see color on the top side and then watch for a uniform pink/orange color. Remove and place on skewers. For the Drink: Pour the vodka, V8, worcestershire, tabasco, salt/pepper, and squeeze of lemon into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into a tall glass with ice. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of bloody mary seasoning (or creole seasoning) on the top of the drink. Garnish with olive spears, celery stalk, shrimp and bacon skewers! Drink, enjoy, repeat
