Cucumber Bloody Mary

IMG_6503I’ve always enjoyed a good Bloody Mary, but I didn’t truly appreciate the unique versatility of this cocktail until I had one at Hotel Congress in Arizona. They are a brunch staple, paired with simple savory foods like poached eggs or a spicy touch to sweet french toast. I’ve been wanting to infuse my own spirits since Christmas, so I was excited when my friend Brittany decided she was going to make cucumber infused vodka for Sunday’s baseball game. IMG_6491The cucumber vodka left a distinct sweet flavor, that isn’t typical of a bloody mary, but with the right combination of jalapeno hot sauce, celery salt, and Worcestershire, it becomes the perfect cocktail for any weekend morning!
