Bloody Maria Cocktail

If you like this recipe, please share!

Have you ever heard of a Bloody Maria Cocktail? It’s Mary’s south of the border cousin. Really, it’s a Bloody Mary but made with tequila rather than vodka. A fun twist to the classic brunch beverage.

Spice up your next brunch gathering by serving a Bloody Maria cocktail instead of the traditional Bloody Mary.

You may be wondering why the big deal between using vodka and tequila. Vodka is a neutral grain, it has no real flavor. That’s also why you see so many flavored vodkas, it will take on the flavor of what’s around it. 

A Bloody Maria is Mary's spicy south of the border cousin, made with tequila rather than vodka.

Tequila, on the other hand, has a much more distinct flavor and does not get lost among the spices in the cocktail. 

When I host gatherings, I love the element of surprise. People would expect a Bloody Mary at a brunch but serving Bloody Maria’s will keep them talking about your party for a long time.

I actually have more tequila in my house than vodka right now, mostly due to vodkas more common use! I'm not a Bloody Mary fan but I could see it working with tequila too.
