Big wheels keep on turning, ‘cause this Proud Mary cocktail keeps on burnin’. This cocktail swaps vodka for tequila, and uses our newest member of the Natural Blonde family: the Spicy Blonde.
- 16 oz jar of Natural Blonde Spicy Blonde Bloody Mary Mix
- 1 lime, zested and cut in half
- 8 oz of reposado, or blanco, tequila
- 6 tablespoons of sugar
- 6 tablespoons of freshly ground black pepper
- 6 tablespoons of Maldon Sea Salt
- Fresh cilantro, for garnish
Refrigerate your jar of Natural Blonde Spicy Mary Bloody Mary mix a few hours before making this drink. Mix together the salt, pepper, lime zest and sugar. Spread the spice mixture evenly on a small plate. Take half of the lime, and run it along the edge of four glasses.
Dip the rim of each glass into the salt. Be sure to give the glass an extra swirl to make sure the salt rimmer is evenly coated on the glass. Put the glasses aside for a few minutes to let the salt rimmer set. Fill your glasses until they are two-thirds full.
Squeeze a splash of lime juice into each glass. Pour 2oz of tequila into each glass. Grab your Natural Blonde Bloody Mary mix, and give the jar a good shake. Pour 4 oz (about half a cup) of Natural Blonde into each glass, and give it a stir.
Sip, enjoy, and prepare for a wild ride!
