Ultimate Spicy Bloody Mary with Stuffed Peperoncinis

Ultimate Spicy Bloody Mary with Stuffed Peperonicinis

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.  

There are few things I enjoy more than a Bloody Mary on a Sunday afternoon.

Yes, I enjoy a mimosa here and there, too- I'm only human- but bloodies are my go-to brunch accoutrement. Give me all the eggs, pancakes and bloody red libations, and I'm one happy mama.

Particularly during the fall. I know, I know- there's still a lot of life left in this summer. But as pre-season football starts and the markets begin to fill with all things black and orange for Halloween, its giving me major fall feels. If only in my mind.

And during the fall, there's nothing like the perfect bloody on game day. Sure, there's some bias, as my husband and I met on one crisp September day over bloodies and the New England Patriots. But there's nothing like the first sip at kick-off to settle you right into my favorite season. 

And while there are a few bottled bloody mixes I approve of in a pinch, there's nothing quite like a homemade concoction from scratch. So as we gear up for football season, we've been stretching our bloody-making skills over here big time. Lately, we've been perfecting our spicy version, complete with a dash of perfectly briney peperoncini juice and delicious stuffed peperoncinis- because my favorite bloodies come filled with a side of skewered-goodness to snack on as we drink.

I've partnered with Mezzetta to turn the ordinary, every day classic into this spicy, crave-worthy favorite. Try 'em out + tell us what you think. And don't forget to scroll down to enter a yummy sweepstakes brought to you by Mezzetta.
