You’ll notice this recipe has one small alteration from the traditional recipe: Sriracha. We don’t keep, or use, Tabasco sauce in this house. I don’t know if there is anything I can say about the Bloody Mary that hasn’t been said before by a better writer. Spicy, fruity, and with lots of umami it’s like a meal in itself. Also, makes for a pretty good pick me up first thing in the morning on a weekend…
