Bloody Margarita

  • SERVINGS: Makes 4 drinks

Nacional 27 · Chicago

Adam Seger prefers tequila to vodka for his Bloody Marys (and his Bloody Margaritas) because it's more acidic and herbal. At Nacional 27, he makes Bloody Mary mix with ketchup, using a recipe adapted from his hometown's Baton Rouge Country Club.
