Pickled Mary

Pickled Mary

This dazzling variation of a Bloody Mary has a secret ingredient—a spicy kachumber salsa that adds all manner of subcontinental nuance to the drink. The cucumber in the recipe is particularly important as it cools down the spices and leaves a delightfully refreshing finish. As with a Bloody Mary, the seasoning can be adjusted to taste.

Mix the kachumber by hand until it has the consistency of a relish or salsa. You can use the lime wedge garnish to adjust the amount of lime juice to your taste.
