Continuing our Sunday Bloody Mary series, we are featuring a unique BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe using Chili Dan’s All Purpose Start to Finish Sauce, his custom rim topper recipe, V8 Vegetable Juice, and garnished with some spicy pickled green beans from Blaze’s. This is a BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe that you can craft to be your own.
BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe using Chili Dan’s All Purpose Sauce
Now, “Chili Dan” Miller is going to have my head on a platter for suggesting that this is a BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe. Chili Dan’s All Purpose Sauce is anything BUT a BBQ sauce… but we have to categorize this somehow… and so BBQ it is.
Make this your own version
The beauty of this recipe, like all good recipes, is that you can make it your own! While we would love for you to get your hands on a couple of bottles of Chili Dan’s Sauce… you can substitute any other favorite BBQ sauce (sweeter is best here) and any spice blend you like for the glass rim. And while Blaze’s Pickled Green Beans is celebrating 20 years up in Vancouver, Canada… again, garnishes are up to you. BTW, Blaze’s Green Beans are easily ordered for shipping to the US on their website. Pas de problème.
Overview of the Chili Dan’s Bloody Mary Recipe
You’re going to pour a little bit of Chili Dan’s (or your favorite BBQ sauce) onto a dish to wet the rim of your glass.
You’re going to dredge the wet rimmed glass in Chili Dan’s Rim Topper seasoning (or your favorite seasonings).
Fill that glass with ice, and add 1 or 2 or 3 tablespoons of Chili Dan’s All Purpose Start to Finish Sauce (or your favorite BBQ sauce).
Add 1 or 2 or 3 ounces of your favorite adult beverage (Vodka in this case. Tequila if it’s Saturday Night. Whiskey if you live in Kentucky or Tennessee.)
Add the Blaze’s Beans and/or any garnishes you like. Chili Dan calls for a “floater” of 1/2 ounce juice (brine) from the pickled beans. I passed on that step.
Final Thoughts: – Refreshing. Probably the most enjoyable and refreshing Bloody Mary I’ve had in a long time. The overall sweet taste was a nice departure from the typical hot, spicy, horseradish-laden Bloody Mary mixers. NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT!
To wrap things up, seriously consider working with this recipe, hopefully with some Chili Dan’s, and make it your own. Get creative and enjoy!
