The Basic Fundamentals

A bit of additional freshly squeezed lime juice, kosher salt & a generous helping of black pepper send this bright take on a Bloody Mary over the edge. The cocktail makes 8 traditional servings when poured over ice into classic glasses.

A handful of cilantro leaves
1 small garlic clove, quartered
1/4 of a small sweet onion, quartered
1/4 of a fresh jalapeño, quartered
1 Tbsp prepared horseradish
1 celery rib, cut into 5 pieces
2 3/4 lbs Roma tomatoes, quartered
1 3/4 tsp kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
The juice of a lime
2 cups tomato juice
1 cup vodka
Garnishes: Celery sticks, lime wedges or sliced jalapeños

Pulse the first 6 ingredients in a food processor. Scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Add the tomatoes & process until well blended & pureed. Pour the mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the salt, a generous helping of pepper, the lime juice, the tomato juice & the vodka. Taste & adjust the seasonings. Shake the mixture, in batches, in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain the mixture into a measuring cup with a sharp spout. Pour the cocktail into 36 standard shot glasses. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

Look no further than the vegetable crisper for celery sticks & jalapeños to garnish this game day icon with a twist. Pickled okra, pork rinds & lime slices make easy eye-catching additions as well.

How To Juice Fresh Limes

Limes can be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. If the zest is desired, take care of that task first by running the outer portion over a microplane grater, then slice the limes in half for juicing. Extracting it is simple when the correct tool is used.

The Technique

 When fresh lime juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lemon press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds will be left behind. Simply remove the used lime halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
