Fire Puncher Bloody Marys

Made in Massachusetts week continues with a favorite brunch cocktail made with a very local product, Fire Puncher Vodka from Grand Ten Distillery in South Boston. I paid a visit to Grand Ten with a group of bloggers earlier in the summer for a tasting, and when Lin and Jon invited us to join them for the official grand opening, I was excited to see their products were for sale. After enjoying a cocktail, we left with a bottle of Fire Puncher Vodka, a smoky, spicy libation I just knew would be delicious in a Bloody Mary.

Fire Puncher Vodka

Bloody Marys are an easy-to-make, delicious drink for brunch. A make-your-own Bloody Mary bar is the perfect way to allow guests to mix and match flavors and customize a drink that’s perfect for their palate.

This time around, I kept the Bloody Marys simple, letting the Fire Puncher be the star of the show. Trust me, it shines.

Like I do with most recipes, I eyeballed my Bloody Mary mix to make just enough for two.


12 ounces of tomato juice

3 teaspoons grated horseradish

juice of one lemon

chipotle hot sauce to taste

black pepper to taste


tomato juice

chipotle hot sauce


Simply stir Bloody Mary mix ingredients into a pitcher. Add ice to two glasses and pour an ounce or two (depending on how your morning’s going!) of the Fire Puncher Vodka over the ice. Top with Bloody Mary mix, stir, and enjoy.

For a variation on the above Bloody Mary mix, add some olive or pickle juice, clam juice, wasabi or lime. Garnish with shrimp or lobster, hot peppers, celery, pickles, or whatever else you like!

    I loooooooove bloody mary’s and this vodka looks fantastic. I love lots of pickled veggies in my BMs as well as olives. The more stuff in there, the better, and definitely extra spicy :)
