This is a Bloody Mary variation using KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce. It is nice to use the same sauce in the drink to pair with the sauce used to BBQ the meat … Original, Hickory, Bourbon or Mesquite.

The optional ingredients improve the drink, but for tailgating ease only the first three ingredients are required.

Or use your favorite Bloody Mary recipe and substitute the KC Masterpiece sauce for Worcestershire sauce.
