Bloody Mary Beer Cocktail

The Bloody Beertail: Substitute beer for the vodka in a Bloody Mary (photo courtesy Pampered Chef).


January 1st is National Bloody Mary Day. But if you prefer beer to vodka, have a Bloody Beertail instead.

It’s a sister beverage to Mexico’s michelada.

Here’s more about beertails.

The cocktail is 1-3/4 cups, plus ice. We adapted the recipe from Pampered Chef.

Ingredients For 1 Drink

For The Rim

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional, see cook’s tip)
  • 1 lime wedge
    For The Drink

  • Ice cubes or frozen tomato juice cubes*
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juiced, from 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup tomato juice or Bloody Mary Mix
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 ounces (1-/2 cups/375 ml) lager beer
  • Ice

    1. MIX the rim ingredients—red pepper flakes and salt—on a small plate. Rub the outer rim of a tall glass with the lime wedge; dip in the rim mixture and twist to coat.

    2. FILL the glass with ice.

    3. ADD the drink ingredients to the glass; stir and serve.


    *You can have fun with the ice cubes. Whether using plain ice cubes or tom ato juice cubes, you can fill the tray compartments with fresh dill or a stuffed olive.
