Hudson Valley Distillers crafts vodka from a fruit that’s been the region’s bounty since colonial times: apples. The vodka features a subtle sweetness from the apples, so Moyer pairs citrus fruits, horseradish and jalapeño with roasted garlic for this sweet-spicy take on a bloody mary.
- 2 cups Hudson Valley Distillers vodka
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- 1 orange, cut into wedges
- 2–3 cloves roasted garlic
- ¾ tablespoon horseradish, drained
- 1 minced jalapeño
- Pinch of salt
- 3 cups tomato juice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Muddle lemon, lime, orange, garlic, horseradish, jalapeño and salt in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, tomato juice and Worcestershire, and stir to combine. Pour into a cocktail glass filled with fresh ice and serve.
