Hey, y’all. Brunch, for most, means one of two things: cocktails or delicious, decadent food. I’m not one to enforce limitations. Thus, I implore: why does it have to be one or the other? Can’t a cocktail boast decadent food accompaniments, too? Well, yes it can, y’all. Meet my Kentucky Bloody Mary Recipe, which is made with Wheatley Vodka.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wheatley Vodka – Craft Vodka Cocktails. All opinions are 100% mine. Originally posted August 2020, Updated September 2021.

About Wheatley Vodka:

Wheatley Vodka – Award-Winning Craft Vodka elevates cocktails and food recipes. It is 10-times distilled, made from the same red winter wheat grain used in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon by Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley. He says it’s “Vodka the way vodka is meant to taste.”
