Jill’s Bloody Mary

  • Serves

    makes 1 Cocktail


Jill Hildebrand of Mahoney's Irish Pub in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, keeps this recipe closely guarded, but we know at least one of her secrets: she tops the drink with a floater of Guinness. The resulting cocktail has the perfect bite, heightened by a dill pickle spear and a piece of beef jerky.


  • 1 12 oz. Absolut Peppar
  • 12 cup tomato juice
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 dashes worcestershire
  • 2 dashes Tabasco sauce
  • 1 pinch celery salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 12 oz. Guinness
  • 1 dill pickle spear, for garnish
  • 1 piece beef jerky, for garnish
