One good recipe

Holla’s jalapeno-infused vodka gives Pennsylvania’s official summer adult drink of 2022 — a spicy bloody Mary — an extra kick. (Gretchen McKay/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette/TNS)

Thanks to its bold, rich flavor and curative properties — tomato juice is said to counter the effects of drinking too much alcohol — a bloody mary often is the drink of choice for Sunday brunch. Yet the vodka-based cocktail is much more than a hair of the dog cure for a hangover. It hits the spot any time you feel like sipping a drink that puts a peppery burn on your lips.

Holla’s Sweetfire Jalapeno vodka, crafted in York, Pennsylvania, is infused with chili peppers, which gives a sweet and gentle heat to mixed drinks. It’s also the base for the official summer cocktail created by the distillery for the Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association to raise money for Uplifting Athletes, a non-profit that raises awareness and research funds for rare diseases.
