SIP OF THE WEEK: The Bloody Halfback

Football is back in full swing, and here is the perfect cocktail to celebrate with, The Bloody Halfback. Don’t be thrown off by its name, it’s simply a spicy twist on the traditional Bloody Mary.

Although this is the perfect treat for football lovers, it’s as big of a hit with everyone. And I know what you’re thinking, but yes there are people out there who don’t love football.
This cocktail is so delicious that just one might not hold you over until halftime.

The rich tomato juice gives the drink a creamy texture while the Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce add a nice kick.
But if you’re looking for more heat, substitute regular Vodka for Absolute Peppar and it will surely spice things up.  

The Bloody Halfback is good any time of the year, but especially goes great with yummy football party snacks like pigs in a blanket and spicy queso dip.
According to, it’s quick and easy to make at home for one or a whole group of rowdy football fans.

First salt the rim of a tall glass and fill with ice, then combine all of the ingredients in the glass, garnish with a lime and add a celery stalk.
If you’re going to make a pitcher of Bloody Halfbacks just multiply the ingredients and enjoy!

No matter what team you’re rooting for, the Bloody Halfback will always be a winner.
