B.L.B (Bacon, Lettuce, Bloody Mary)

As grunt workers of the service industry, we have our finger on the pulse of what is 'hot' in dining. The ebb and flow of nutrient popularity based on a multitude of requests. Since we get inspiration from every aspect of our lives, this shot is for all my gluten free people. Say Hay! Denying yourselves the tasty goodness of bread (and toast) and by default, the most delicious of bread based fare, the B.L.T.

This B.L.T. in addition to being gluten free, alcohol filled, and sans mayo, differs from tradition in one more way. Instead of T(omato) it's B(loody Mary). Perfect for brunch parties, Lunch parties or a quiet night at home with a good book.

The B.L.B.
Layer 1:
Bloody Mary Mix (recipe below)
Layer 2:
Bacon infused vodka
Maple syrup
Layer 3:
Lettuce leaf
Garnish with Lime zest

I used to make this for a restaurant that had a popular brunch so I am used to making it in large quantities. The following will make more Bloody mary mix than you need for these shots. (unless you are catering a wedding.) Feel free to adjust the recipe to your needs and tastes, OR you can drink bloody marys while constructing your shots! In that case, make some extra bacon vodka too!

Bloody Mary Mix
6 cups (48 oz) tomato Juice
1/8 cup horseradish
1 teaspoon of celery seed
1/4 cup guinness (optional)
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
the juice of 3 limes
few dashes of Hot sauce (I use cristal, use your favorite)
a dash of smoked paprika (optional)
Fresh ground black pepper.

Taste and modify to your preferences.
