Post and recipe by Christo from ChezWhat.
Wake up brunch there is a new Mary in town! The buttons in the drink and the sugar, salt, button combo on the glasses’ rims will be enough ‘hair of the dog’ for anyone!
A Bloody Button Mary is a twist on the traditional Bloody Mary, and while it isn’t too different in the basic ingredients it does stray in its construction and even this is subtle. What isn’t subtle is the exotic ‘kick’ you get from the Szechuan button.
Squeeze lime juice into a pitcher, and add veggie juice, Worcestershire sauce, chopped up szechuan buttons (really, really minced), pepper sauce and salt. Chill. When ready, stir in vodka and serve over an ice cube in a small glass that has been ‘rimmed’ with a mixture of salt, sugar and more minced szechuan buttons. Garnish with a carrot stick and a green bean sliver and if you are truly decadent add a button!
