Bloody Bourbon Recipe:


Start to finish: 5 minutes

Servings: depends on how bad the hangover!     


  • 6 ounces V8® tomato juice
  • 1 ½  tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ ounce Schreiner’s chorizo
  • 3 fresh basil leaves (we simply pick the freshest herbs from our rooftop garden)
  • 1 medium size dehydrated hatch chili
  • ¾ teaspoon of celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon of horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 ½ ounces Jim Beam Black Bourbon
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste


Preparation: Start by adding V8® tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, chorizo and basil into a high speed blender. Blend until all the ingredients are pureed. Next add hatch chili and blend at slow speed until the chili is pureed. Last, stir in your celery seed, sea salt, horseradish, Jim Beam Bourbon and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Pour all ingredients into a Mason jar and garnish with slice of chorizo, whole hatch chili, large sprig of basil, and any hot pepper if you want some more heat.
