Pace Picante Bloody Mary... I had a dream


As I said in my last post, I was sent 2 jars of Pace Picante by Foodbuzz as part of the "Tastemaker" program. I told you what my first idea was. So, I had another jar of Pace Picante (mild) to play around with another recipe. Being the "little bit weird" person that I have been called, I actually dreamt of this recipe. When I woke up I passed it by Dr. Food, who I thought would be revolted by it. Not at all. He called me brilliant. This is what it is:

16 oz Pace Picante (Mild)
7 oz Vodka
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3/4 C water
1/2 to 1 lime

Whir up in blender and serve over ice.

I decided that maybe Dr. Food was just being nice so I invited our neighbor Jeff to give it a try. Not that Jeff isn't nice, but he is VERY honest. He loved it! A recipe was born. I suggest you try it. It will make you smile.


  1. The recipe alone makes me smile... keep dreaming

  2. For those who don't want the eternal buzz of vodka, you might mix this with soju or sake as well.

  3. By George, Janis, I believe you're onto something! Relish the creativity and being fearless to try something outside of the box. Always enjoy your blogs and voted for you - well earned.

  4. I need some of that now to get through this boring day

  5. Not very familiar w/ bloody Mary but this one sounds really good

  6. I have dreams like this sometimes - where some amazing food concoction suddenly appears. Great job!

  7. Sounds awesome, so creative to use Pace picante sauce!

  8. I sometimes feel like I am the only person who does not like Bloody Mary's...though I could totally do this deconstructed and eat the salsa with chips while sipping vodka with lime...weird, I know!
