Uncommon Recipe: The Mean & Bloody

mean and bloody

The good news is you have July 5th off. The bad news is you had too much fun on the 4th and are nursing a serious hangover. The final recipe in our pickle series and the perfect I-had-one-too-many-beers/margaritas/sangrias/etc. cure, the Mean and Bloody is a hot and spicy twist on the classic Bloody Mary and gets its name from the spicy pickled Mean Beans that garnish it.

Let’s get mean!

Rick Field’s Mean & Bloody

Over ice combine

1 oz. Absolut Peppar Vodka (regular vodka  works, but Peppar is extra,  extra tasty )

3 oz. V8 (regular tomato juice works, but again, V8 is just better)

2 dashes of Worcestershire

½ teaspoon prepared horseradish

2 dashes Tabasco (start with two, but I found that I like a few more)

1 quarter lemon or lime squeezed and dropped into the drink

Generous splash Mean Beans brine

2-3 pickles (link people pickles) and if you want, a spoonful of some of the garlic and spices from the pickle jar

Pepper to taste

Stir and garnish with a few Mean Beans!
