“It seems like everyone is jumping on the Sriracha bandwagon these days, but it seems a natural for a delicious Bloody Mary! Prep time does not include 4 hours refrigeration time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 1-1/2 quart pitcher, combine tomato juice, lime juice, Sriracha, lemon juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and celery salt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to blend flavors.
  2. Meanwhile, make bacon garnish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or foil. Thread 8 slices of bacon onto 6-inch skewers (if wooden, make sure they have soaked in water for at least 30 minutes). Place on baking sheet with 4 additional slices of bacon on pan. Bake until crispy, about 12-15 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Finely chop the additional 4 slices of bacon and spread over a small plate. Brush the rims of 8 cocktail glasses with light corn syrup and press into chopped bacon.
  3. Before serving, stir vodka into tomato juice mixture. Divide the Bloody Mary mix among 8 glasses and garnish with the bacon skewers. Additional garnish can include celery stalks, cherry tomatoes, and lemon zest strips.
