There is definitely something about the impending summer season that has me thinking about brunch.  Like crushing hard on the idea of brunch.  Like waking up in the middle of the night and fantasizing about the most amazing french toast creations washed down by the best Bloody Mary.
Why the connection between summer and brunch you ask?  I don’t know.  There is something about sitting out on the patio of a restaurant and eating brunchy foods that just makes me so happy.
So when this idea of infusing vodka with jalapeños magically popped in my head, I knew I had to run with it.  {Spoiler alert!  I’m not the first Bloody Mary loving genius to come up with this.}
Don’t the jalapeños look so pretty infusing?
So this morning when I was getting it all together and coming up with the perfect recipe, the thought occurred to me.  “Hmmmm, surely I am not the first person who thought of this . . . “
Google responded with, “Of course you aren’t.  Go make yourself another pot of coffee, you ain’t thinking right, yo.”  (I bet you didn’t know that Google is super sassy and has the same voice as Mr. T)
Yeah . . . so when I was working on my 30 Great Summer Cocktails post, I came across this little gem from the lovely ladies over at A Beautiful Mess.  Turns out that I thought it looked so yummy that it imprinted itself on my brain.
So this is definitely inspired by them.
The recipe itself is a Lisa Original.  I just kept throwing things in until I was happy.
It is spicy y’all.  So spicy that I was forced to use the word y’all.  But it is yuuuuuuuummmmy.
Okay, off to enjoy my super non original beverage, the very one pictured in fact, that has been waiting patiently for me all day.

    Ooohhh…. Lisa – this looks divine! Now, we drink Caesars ’round these parts, which I’m assuming is just a Bloody Mary, but with the clam and tomato juice instead of plain tomato juice?

      My brother got married in Canada, and we had Bloody Caesars . . . I was not such a fan. But try this with Clamato juice and tell me how it is! Maybe the jalapeño taste would overcome the clammy taste and I would like it.

    Oh my gosh! I’ve NEVER heard of anyone else using pickle juice in their Bloody Mary’s! It’s the only way I’ll drink them 🙂 This sounds like a fabulous recipe too! I can’t wait to make some jalapeno infused Bloody Mary’s!
