A bloody mary is such a fun brunch cocktail, and this is a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. It lends itself to lots of my favorite ingredients from Italy: Calabrian chili paste, sweet tomato puree, and delicious antipasti to load up the garnish. This savory cocktail is like an antipasti board in drink form, and I love it. Simply double the recipe to make two at a time; you can also quadruple it and mix in a pitcher.

  1. On a small plate, spread out the Dario salt. Take a highball glass and run a lemon wedge around the rim to moisten. Dip the moistened rim into the Dario salt, coating it evenly. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add the cherry tomato sauce, vodka, Calabrian chili paste and Worcestershire. Cover and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is cold and frosty, about 15 to 20 seconds.
  3. Pour the cocktail into the prepared glass. Skewer artichoke hearts, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes onto cocktail picks or skewers. Optionally, add mozzarella ciliegine, salami, basil or lemon to the cocktail pick as desired. If using, place a rib of celery or fennel frond into the cocktail. Place the garnish skewers across the tops of the glasses and serve cold.
