I love tacos, I love taco trucks, I also love occasionally enjoying a spicy Bloody Mary and always enjoy supporting a local business. Now, while some folks like a meal served on a skewer with their Bloody Mary, I like to keep mine simple and load up on olives (there are 5 by the way).
This recipe mix (sans alcohol) is meant to be multi-functional. I can see using it not only to enjoy as a virgin version of a favorite brunch treat, but also to cook brown rice in a crock pot, or as a base for a soup. I’m excited at the thought of giving my favorite taco truck hot sauce an extended life in other dishes throughout the week. SOooooo, I decided to test this cocktail recipe before the leftover taco sauce ate a hole trough our dining room table (not even kidding!).
I do hope you enjoy your Bloody Mary as much as I have enjoyed mine. Be sure to tag me on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook when you try my recipe and use the #TacoTruckBloodyMary hashtag! I’d love to see your favorite taco truck meals, hot sauce, and Bloody Mary.
