Red Snapper Cocktail Recipe

The Red Snapper is a delightful and refreshing twist on the classic Bloody Mary. This vibrant cocktail swaps the usual vodka base for gin, creating a unique flavor profile that's perfect for brunch, a relaxing afternoon, or anytime you crave a savory and satisfying drink.

Ingredients:

2 ounces gin (Choose your favorite! Popular options include Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, or Hendrick's)

4 ounces tomato juice (high-quality tomato juice makes a difference)

½ ounce fresh lemon juice

6 dashes Tabasco sauce (adjust to your spice preference)

4 dashes Worcestershire sauce

Pinch of celery salt

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Lime wedge (for garnish)

Celery stalk (for garnish)

   

Instructions:

For a classic Bloody Mary presentation, take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of a highball or pint glass. Then, dip the rim into a plate with celery salt to create a savory border.

In your prepared glass, add the gin, tomato juice, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, and black pepper.

Fill the glass with ice cubes and stir well to thoroughly combine all the flavors. The ice will help chill the drink without diluting it too much.

Add a lime wedge and a celery stalk for a visually appealing garnish. Now, raise your glass and enjoy your delicious Red Snapper!

Tips:

Always use fresh lemon juice for the brightest flavor. Pre-bottled lemon juice can have a harsher taste.

The amount of Tabasco is adjustable based on your personal preference. Start with a few dashes and add more for a spicier kick.

Want a richer taste? Add a bar spoon of horseradish to the mix for an extra savory punch.

For a vegetarian alternative to Worcestershire sauce, substitute a few dashes of soy sauce or a vegan Worcestershire sauce.

Get creative with your garnish! Olives, a pickled okra spear, or even a small green pepper can add a fun and visually interesting touch.

The Red Snapper is a versatile and flavorful cocktail that's perfect for various occasions. With its balance of savory, spicy, and tart flavors, it's a refreshing and satisfying twist on a classic. So next time you're looking for a delicious and unique drink, give the Red Snapper a try! You won't be disappointed.
