Bloodytini – Bloody Mary Martini

The Bloodytini is the evening version of the Bloody Mary. While the Bloody Mary is all done up in ice and garnishes and a tall glass, the Bloodytini leaves the ice in the shaker and is served in a low-cut glass. This drink is a savory cocktail – perfect to kick off a heartier meal.

The Ingredients:

  • Vodka – Grey Goose is my preference. If you like spice, you may elect to use a pepper vodka
  • Bloody Mary Mix – see my recipe for homemade mix or use your favorite mix
  • Hot Sauce – Tobasco is the standard, but use whatever sauce you prefer
  • Olive Juice – if you have a jar of green olives, use a smidge of the juice from the jar
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Olives for Garnish – I use bleu cheese stuffed olives that I stuff by hand
  • Ice

The Tools:

  • Shaker
  • Measuring Shot Glass – grab one that shows ozs
  • Martini Glass
  • Pick for Olives

The Action:

  • Gather your ingredients:

Bloodytini Ingredients WM

  • Fill the shaker 2/3 full with ice.
  • Measure 2.5 oz of vodka and pour it over the ice in the shaker.
  • Measure 2.5 oz of bloody mary mixture and add it to the shaker.
  • Shake Tabasco in to your spice preference.
  • Pour a splash of olive juice into the shaker – a teaspoon full maybe and not much more.
  • Cover the shaker and shake for 15-20 second to blend the ingredients.
  • Strain into a martini glass.
  • Add 3-4 drops of Worcestershire sauce over the top in the middle. This will sink to the bottom and look pretty darned cool.
  • Add the olives or whatever garnish you like. If you want to stuff your own, you can do that or use whatever olives you prefer.
  • The end result will look like this:
