To kick off his New Year's Day feast, Jean-Georges Vongerichten served zingy Bloody Marys spiced with a pureed Thai chile in place of the traditional Tabasco, giving the cocktails a subtle, fruity sweetness. Any mild hot red pepper will work.  Classic Cocktail Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a blender, combine the tomato juice with the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black pepper, celery seeds and Thai chile. Blend well. Transfer the Bloody Mary mix to a pitcher. Stir in the vodka.

Step 2    

Divide the cherry tomatoes among 10 tall glasses; muddle the tomatoes. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the Bloody Mary mix, garnish each drink with a celery rib and lemon wedge and serve.

Make Ahead

The Bloody Mary mix can be refrigerated overnight. Add the vodka before serving.
