My husband loves Bloody Mary’s in the morning on the weekends or on vacation. Who doesn’t right??? He also loves pickles, so I thought…what would happen if you combined the two – Bloody Mary Pickles.
So, I went about trying some recipes for pickles to have with hamburgers, hot dogs…well just about anything that would have that same spicy flavor and let me tell you, these are delicious! You can add other ingredients to make them your own too. You can make them spicier by adding more hot sauce or horseradish or adding a slice of cooked bacon might give them some smoky flavor. The sky is the limit with these flavorful babies!
Here is the basic recipe:
- 3 small pickling cucumbers, cut lengthwise
- 3 lemon rounds
- 1/3 c. tomato juice
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. prepared horseradish
- 1/2 tsp. black peppercorns
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 garlic clove, cut into thirds or minced
- Dash of hot sauce
- 1/4 c. vodka
Pack cucumbers, lemon rounds, and garlic into a glass jar.
In a small saucepan, medium heat, combine tomato juice, lemon juice, horseradish, peppercorns, salt, and hot sauce. Bring to boil, remove, and add vodka.
Pour over cucumbers. Let cool completely, then seal with lid and refrigerate until cool. These Bloody Mary Pickles are amazing and are sure to be the hit of your next party.
Pass the Bloody Mary Pickles please!
