Fisherman’s Blood Recipe
- 1 1/2 Ounce Horseradish vodka
- 3 Ounces Clamato-watre mix
- 1/2 Ounce lemon juice
- 2 dashes Tabasco
- pickled cherry tomato
Inspired by a stroll from the famed Ferry Building (and its collection of top-notch food stands) to Fisherman’s Wharf, where the fog rolls in off the bay, Fisherman’s Blood brings the indelible flavors of the sea and the city’s heritage as one of America’s most exciting cocktail cities into your glass with house-infused horseradish-peppercorn vodka and our own briny Clamato juice.
Method: Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice, and shake gently. Rim specialty/tulip glass with mixture of salt, pepper, mustard powder and Old Bay. Pour drink into glass. Garnish with a pickled cherry tomato.
Horseradish vodka: Using a microplane, shave 4 oz. horseradish into an empty gallon-size container; add a bottle of vodka and white peppercorns. Allow to steep for 48 hours. Remove horseradish and peppercorns
Clamato-Water Mix: Blanch tomatoes and peel. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Quarter the tomatoes and add a small amount of water and blend. Strain out any solids. To the remaining liquids, add half the amount of clam juice. Add a spoonful of malt vinegar and ¼ teaspoon of salt and pepper each or to taste. Blend thoroughly.
