The ultimate hangover cocktail, a good Bloody Mary makes everything better. This smoky version uses barbecue sauce and chipotles in adobo sauce to give it a nice edge. If you’re having a hard time finding chipotles in adobo sauce, be creative and add in a different smoked pepper or look for smoky barbecue sauce.
What to buy: Chipotles are dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. This recipe calls for the canned variety, chipotles in adobo sauce (aka chipotle en adobo), packed in a spicy sauce. Look for them in the Latin section of your supermarket.
