Spice up the Playoffs with Wasabi Bloody Marys

The one and only reason I like the playoffs: It gives me a reason to start drinking at 10 a.m. on a Sunday morning. Plus, now that the Seahawks are out I need more of a reason than ever to make it through one...more...Sunday.

Wasabi Bloody Marys

1 lime, juiced
4 teaspoons wasabi
6 cups spicy V-8 juice
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons hot sauce (tapatio or tobasco)
3/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoons pepper
1 1/2 cups vodka
*Combine lime juice and wasabi and whisk until wasabi dissolves. Add all ingredients together in a pitcher and chill. Serve over ice with celery and my favorite: green olives stuffed with jalapenos. SPICY!


  1. These sound like they are H-O-T- Hot! And I agree, the only reason I put up with football season is for all the good drinks and food!

  2. There is now a Wasabi Spirit (40% ABV) available from that really spices up a Bloody Mary and a Bloody Caesar. It has already won a couple of medals and there are more drink recipes in the site as well. As a breakfast drink - it surely must be one of the best. :)

  3. I'll have to keep the wasabi tip in mind the next time I mix this drink. I think it'll add a nice novel touch.

  4. So spicy and delicious - these would put some pep in my step!
