How To: Mix a poblano, garlic, and sun-dried tomato Blood Mary

Mix a poblano, garlic, and sun-dried tomato Blood Mary

Blood Mary's seem like a simple alcoholic drink, but the more complicated they get, the more you'll love them. That's why this Blood Mary drink is one to remember, because it isn't just vodka you're adding… it's poblano, sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic infused vodka. Mmm!

Cape Cod's Erik Bevans, known to his Quahog Republic Dive Bar customers as Johnny Quahog, shakes up a mean Bloody Mary. Not too hot and not too spicy, he blends the requisite mix ingredients, adds that to his Poblano & Garlic-Infused Vodka and finish with a bacon swizzle stick. Hello!
