‘The DMC Bloody Maria’ .
Not suitable for vegetarians!
It’s been an absolute delight getting to work with @thedorsetmeatcompany To make two meat based cocktails using their delicious, ethically sourced meat. They hand pick the finest grass-fed, outdoor reared meat produced sustainably and in harmony with nature to put into their meat boxes that are delivered straight to your door.
This hearty meal in a glass is based on the beloved Bloody Mary cocktail. I’m going to be using @thedorsetmeatcompany ‘s smoked streaky bacon 🥓 for this one with an @ilegalmezcal A deliciously smoky agave based spirit from Mexico, making our maiden cocktail a Maria, not Mary. .
Now bear with me a second, we don’t put the fat straight into the drink, we are going to wash our Mezcal with the bacon fat 🥓 to give it a meaty flavour. Once the fat is cooled put it in an old jam jar, with about 100ml of Mezcal to every tablespoon of bacon fat. Shake and leave on the kitchen side for the flavours to meld for about 3 hours, and then place in the freezer over night. The fat and the flavoured Mezcal will separate, lift off the bacon fat and strain the Mezcal through a cheese cloth or coffee filter. .
To make the DMC Bloody Maria, • 50ml Bacon fat washed @ilegalmezcal • 25ml chilli infused Sherry (leave 3 chillis cut in half in 150ml sweet sherry overnight) • 8 dashes Worcestershire sauce
• 2 dashes tobacco hot sauce
• 20ml Lemon juice
• 15ml lime juice
• pinch celery salt & ground black pepper
• 100ml rich and thick tomato 🍅 juice (doesn’t have to be homemade but it does taste amazing!) • streaky bacon, celery leaves and a sherry soaked chilli for garnish 🌶
In a Boston shaker, add all the ingredients and ice, and roll the cocktail (pouring from one half the shaker to the other instead of shaking - to add aeration without diluting!) or simply stir. Pour into a tall glass with ice, rimmed with celery salt. Garnish with that crispy bacon, greens and 🌶 & enjoy!! 📷 by @marte_marie_forsberg
