Thirsty Thursdays: Bloody Carrot Maria

April 25, 2013

The bloody carrot Maria is a spicy twist on this classic cocktail.  Curry infused tequila replaces the vodka in the traditional recipe.  The carrot juice adds sweetness to the cocktail without it becoming overwhelming.  Add a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce for some added heat.

2 ounces Numi Carrot Curry Savory Tea-infused tequila**
Worcestershire sauce 
Tabasco sauce
fresh veggies for garnish

In a tall glass with ice, add tequila then fill the rest of the glass with half bloody Mary mix and half carrot juice. Add a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce and the juice of half a lime. Mix with a spoon, sprinkle a little black pepper on the top and garnish with celery and fresh veggies.

** To infuse liquor with tea, just fill a glass container with liquor in the amount that you need for your recipe. One tea bag is enough for up to 8 ounces of liquor. Seal your container with an airtight lid and store it in a dark area. Allow it to infuse for 48-72 hours before removing the tea bag.
