Smoky Bloody Mary

The ultimate hangover cocktail, a good Bloody Mary makes everything better. This smoky version uses barbecue sauce and chipotles in adobo sauce to give it a nice edge. If you’re having a hard time finding chipotles in adobo sauce, be creative and add in a different smoked pepper or look for smoky barbecue sauce.

What to buy: Chipotles are dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. This recipe calls for the canned variety, chipotles in adobo sauce (aka chipotle en adobo), packed in a spicy sauce. Look for them in the Latin section of your supermarket.

This recipe was featured as part of our New Year’s Day Brunch menu. See also our classic Bloody Mary recipe.
