Extra-Spicy Bloody Maria

The ultimate hangover cocktail, a good Bloody Mary makes everything better. We’ve switched it up with tequila, pickled jalapeños, and an eye-opening dose of cayenne pepper.

What to buy: Buy whole pickled jalapeños from a well-stocked market or Latin grocery, or make your own.


  1. 1Drop a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Add the tequila, tomato juice, horseradish, Worcestershire, hot sauce, jalapeño brine, salt, black pepper, lemon juice, cayenne, and celery seeds. Shake until chilled, about 15 seconds.
  2. 2Strain into a large Old Fashioned glass half-filled with ice cubes. Garnish with the pickled jalapeño and celery stick and serve.
