No matter which coast your team hails from, bacon is a sure-fire crowd pleaser. And if you want to go the extra mile to impress your guests, try my Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn recipe. Save some for me!
BLOODY MARYIngredients Celery salt 1 Lemon juice 1 Lime juice 2 oz Vodka (freeze Vodka overnight) 6 oz Premade Bloody Mary Mix (Freshies is my favorite) 1 dash Tabasco Sauce 2 tsp Prepared horseradish 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce 1 pinch Celery salt or Old Bay seasoning 1 pinch Freshly ground black pepper
Directions Pour some celery sate or Old Bay seasoning in a small plate. Squeeze lemon or lime juice into a small bowl and dip the glass rim into the juice. Roll the outer edge on the glass in the salt or seasoning until fully coated. For extra zing use Tabasco sauce instead of the lemon or lime juice. Add the remaining ingredients into a shaker and fill with ice. Shake gently and strain into the prepared glass.
Garnish with celery stalk (with the leaves on) and a strip of candied bacon (see recipe below) or a bamboo skewer of olives, tiny grape tomatoes and a lime wedge.
