Flamin' Hot Cheetos Bloody Mary

The king of brunch cocktails, the Bloody Mary, can be manipulated to satisfy your ever salty desire. It can be customized with everything from buffalo sauce to Clamato to tomatillos to one of the most extreme, fiery and crunchy snacks of all time: Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. If you’re a devotee of these tongue-tingling bites, you’re probably willing to put them on anything, whether it be a pizza or a bagel—heck, you might even incorporate them into your art. So why not try infusing them into your brunchtime drinking? No matter how deep your love goes, this Flamin’ Hot Bloody Mary will curb your crunchy cravings. Made with some of the same seasonings that give the Cheetos their kick, it comes complete with a flamin’ hot rim that is dangerously spicy—even Chester Cheetah would approve.
