With Halloween around the corner, I thought it would be a great excuse for a recipe with a ghoulish theme.

No pumpkins here…not black cats and, hey, no black or orange in sight. Instead, I want am putting a spin of the classic Bloody Mary (that’s creepy…right?) and making it a tad more spooky with a green hue and a frightful kick of Ghost and Scorpion pepper hot sauce!

Green Bloody Mary with Ghost and Scorpion Pepper Hot Sauce

I’ve partnered with the folks at The Angry Saucier, a local small-batch hot sauce creator . Here their Ghost and Scorpion hot sauce adds a sting and a depth of flavour that is accentuated by the fresh veg in this cocktail. And

The Angry Saucier uses a selection of hot peppers, from habanero to Carolina Reaper to craft theirrobust hot sauces that contain no stabilizers, no artificial colours and no preserving agents.

Are you a spice fiend? Do you want to try some of The Angry Saucier’s amazing hot sauces? Well they have generously provided a starter gift pack for giveaway! Want to win? Simply comment below telling me your FAV hot pepper for your chance to win! (*Contest open to Canadian residents only).

In addition to the ghastly kick of the ghost pepper, this Bloody Mary uses a homemade tomato juice, with a base of tomatillos for a surprising colour and tangy flavour, perfect for your Halloween get together.

I have recommended only 1 teaspoon of hot sauce, but try that out to start and add more if you want a little more heat.
