- 3 to 4 spicy mary cube (see below for instruction)
- 2 oz pepper or lemon vodka
- splash of lemon juice
- splash of tabasco
Garnish: small celery stalk, speared red chile pepper (optional)
To make spicy Mary cubes, make your own Bloody Mary mix or buy a pre-made one and add horseradish, while olives, or Worcestershire sauce, or whatever else you like to put in your Bloody Mary mix. Pour the spicy Mary mix into ice trays. Place the trays in the freezer and let sit until cubes are frozen.
Place the spicy Mary cubes in an empty martini glass. Combine the vodka, lemon juice, and Tabasco in a cocktail shaker filled with ice shake vigorously, and strain over the Mary cubes. Garnish with a small celery stalk and a chile, if using. The longer you let the martini sit, the more the cubes will infuse into the martini. (
