Bloody Mary Shots

A Bloody Mary is a classic cocktail made with vodka, tomato juice, and a mix of spices and flavorings like Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and various herbs.

It’s a brunch favorite, often garnished with everything from celery sticks and olives to bacon and chicken wings! It is sometimes touted as a hangover cure.

We’ve taken a basic Bloody Mary Shots recipe and kicked it up a notch with Chipotle Tequila, Pepper Vodka, and spicy Bloody Mary mix.

Adding Tajin seasoning on the rim, a blend of chili peppers, lime, and sea salt, adds an extra layer of zest and heat.

The garnish for the shots is a combination of lime, jalapeño, and fresh parsley, which looks great and complements the spicy and savory cocktail flavors.

Devil’s Fire Shot

We’ve dubbed the fiery concoction the Devil’s Fire Shot, and it would be a great addition to Halloween festivities!

The fiery red hue and spicy kick make them perfect for a night of spooky fun.

Imagine serving these at a Halloween party or a themed dinner event.

They’re a great conversation starter, especially when served alongside other themed dishes.

So grab that cocktail shaker, and let’s go!

Ingredients & Equipment For Bloody Mary Shots

The ingredients and tools in this recipe are conveniently linked to online retailers like Amazon or Amazon Fresh.

Ingredients For Devil’s Fire

  • Tanteo Chipotle TequilaAny spicy tequila will work in this shot if you can’t find this brand.
  • Pepper Vodka Such as Absolut Peppar. However, if you can’t source this, you can make your own pepper vodka by adding 2 tablespoons of slightly cracked peppercorns to 750ml of vodka and leaving to infuse for 7 days. Gentle shake every day, and strain when ready to use.
  • Spicy Bloody Mary MixIf you can’t find a spicy mix, simply use regular Bloody Mary mix or tomato juice and add hot sauce or chili powder to your desired heat level.

Cocktail Equipment

  • This cocktail is shaken, but don’t worry if you don’t have a cocktail shaker!
  • Use a container with a tight-fitting lid—like a mason jar or the cup on a blender or smoothie maker.

Recipe Tips!

  • Use ice cubes in the cocktail shaker to ensure the shots are super chilled.
  • For a milder version, replace the spicy liquors with regular ones.
  • Experiment with different hot sauces to find your preferred heat level.
  • Pickle Shots! For a fun way to serve the spicy tomato shots, halve and hollow out large pickles to form pickle shot glasses. Slice a thin sliver from the base of the pickle so that it stands up. It becomes a drink and snack in one!
  • When setting up your bar, place out popular Bloody Mary garnishes such as celery stalks, kosher salt, celery salt, olives, dill pickle spears, pickled vegetables, and Worcestershire Sauce.

Devil’s Fire Mocktails with Non-Alcoholic Spirits

In the UK, try Lyre’s, which is also available on Amazon in the UK and Amazon.com.

Other brands include Strykk (UK) and Ritual (US & Canada). Non-alcoholic spirits are a growing trend, so be on the lookout in your local stores and online.

Big Batch Bloody Mary Shots

Want to make a big batch of these spicy shots for a party or gathering? It’s easy – here’s how!

If you use the same measuring container (glass, cup, jug, etc.) for the “1 part”, the ratios will be correct, and you can make as much as you need to.

To make Devil’s Fire Shots for a crowd, mix together:

  • 2 parts Chipotle Tequila
  • 2 parts Pepper Vodka
  • 4 parts Spicy Bloody Mary Mix

Serve the large batch cocktail in pitchers and add ice to keep the drink chilled and pour into shot glasses.

TIP! To prevent dilution, pour tomato juice or Bloody Mary mix into ice cube trays, and use those to keep the mixture cold.

Saving Leftovers

While it’s best to enjoy the cocktail fresh to savor its flavors, you may have some left at the end of your party—don’t let it go to waste!

  • Store any leftover Bloody Mary mix in an airtight pitcher or container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Garnishes like lime wedges and jalapeños are best used fresh.
