When the weekend rolls around and we want to kick back and relax, there’s nothing that hits the spot quite like a bloody Mary. We love Zach Braff's Mermaid Mary for its clean simplicity—but when it comes to our bloodies, we like ‘em hot! So we took this yummy Sunday sipper and added some extra spice.

Okay, a lot of extra spice.

Our version uses three different hot sauces, plus a healthy dose of horseradish, balanced out nicely with a little bit of brown sugar. You can make the tomato juice mixture a day or two ahead of time, so when the weekend rolls around all you have to do is stir, spike and enjoy…and maybe even throw on a few episodes of Scrubs.
