Whether it's brunch, a holiday, or just your average weekend, a Bloody Mary is a great cocktail to enjoy in the morning or, really, any other time of day. And, boy, do we have a way for you to elevate your next Bloody Mary.
Kick things up a notch with the addition of a mini burger on Pretzel Bites bun and an artisanal flavored salt rim (we recommend Chili Lime!).
Slice Pretzel Bites in half and place on a pan then butter and top with Chili Lime Salt or Everything Spice. Bake according to our heating instructions.
Heat medium-sized skillet over medium heat and place strips of bacon in the pan. Flip when strips begin to curl, cook until crispy, then transfer to a plate.
In a medium bowl, gently mix ground beef, salt and pepper. Form into four small one- or two-inch-round patties.
Divide slice of American cheese into four small squares.
Warm-up your grill. If using a propane grill, heat to 400 degrees. Cook patties for 2-4 minutes (depending on how well done you prefer), melt one square of American cheese over each patty and transfer patties to a plate.
Pour chili lime salt onto a clean plate and wet rim of glasses with water. Place mouth of glass into chili lime salt for a salted, garnished rim.
Fill glasses with ice, 4 green olives, and a lime wedge. Pour in 1 cup of your favorite Bloody Mary mix. Place one strip of bacon and one dill pickle spear standing up in each glass for garnish.
Take wooden skewer and add, in this order, cherry tomato, top pretzel bite bun, patty with cheese, romaine lettuce, bottom bun and 2 pickle chips. Place skewer into glass next to bacon and pickle.
