This is a very forgiving recipe if you prefer less spice omit the horseradish. Alternatively, if you like a hearty, almost pungent kick of spice, use 1 cup of Pepper-infused vodka instead.

Bloody Mary Cocktail Bites

You’ll Need:
1-pint cherry tomatoes
2 Tbs Franks hot pepper sauce
1/4 tsp horseradish
1/2 cup Pepper Flavored vodka (see recipe below!)
1/2 cup plain vodka

2 Tbs lemon pepper Seasoning
2 Tbs celery salt

  1. Using a toothpick, gently poke a couple of holes in each cherry tomato and place them into a jar.
  2. Add the Franks hot pepper sauce and horseradish over the tomatoes and swirl the jar gently to coat the tomatoes evenly, then add vodka to cover.
  3. Refrigerate, and allow them to marinate in the seasoning for about 2 hours prior to serving.
  4. To Serve, combine the lemon pepper seasoning and celery salt, Using cocktail picks dip the marinated tomato into the seasoning salt blend and enjoy!

Don’t allow these to soak overnight as the tomatoes will become a bit too mushy.

Bloody Maria Variation

If you’d prefer “Bloody Maria” Cocktail bites, omit the vodkas and use tequila instead.
