Spicy Bloody Mary With Bacon-Salt Rim

Spicy, meet salty
Spicy Bloody Mary With Bacon-Salt Rim recipe - The Daily Meal
Courtesy Big Bear Brewing Company

Big Bear Brewing Company in Coral Springs, Florida is known for their epic Bloody Mary. Bartender Maria Rodriguez gladly spilled her special recipe for this popular drink: Demitri's Bloody Mary seasoning is mixed with V-8, and they use bacon salt to rim the glass, which adds a smoky, savory garnish. But it doesn't stop there. The brunch cocktail is finished with celery, pepperoncini, green olive and a pickled, spicy, green bean—a crudite tray in a glass.

This recipe was originally published in the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
