Excerpted from Red Hot Sriracha by Melissa Petitto

People who say they don’t like a Bloody Mary are people who haven’t had a good one. This version delivers. It’s peppery and piquant and begging for you to host brunch already.
1 32-ounce bottle tomato juice
½ cup (120ml/4fl oz) freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups (475ml/16fl oz) vodka
¾ cup (180ml/6fl oz) Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons pepper
2 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish
1 tablespoon dry mustard
½ cup (120ml/4fl oz) sriracha
Jackie O’s Dark Apparition Imperial or a local stout beer, for topping off
Sea or kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 celery stalks
16 green olives
16 pickled haricot verts (optional)
16 pickled baby carrots (optional)
*Have fun with these—use one or all! But don’t skip on the spicy rim coated with sriracha, salt, and pepper.
In a large pitcher, combine the tomato juice, lemon juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, horseradish, dry mustard, and sriracha and stir vigorously.
When ready to serve the cocktails, rub or squirt sriracha around the rims of the serving glasses.
Combine the salt and pepper on a small plate and mix well. Dip the sriracha-rimmed glasses in the mixture to coat.
Fill each glass three-quarters with ice and then pour the pre-mixed Bloody Mary on top, topping the glass off with the stout beer.
Skewer olives or your favorite pickled veggies onto toothpicks. Garnish each glass with celery and veggie skewers and serve.
