The Bloody Mary meets the Boilermaker. Served with or without a shot of tequila, this spicy beer-and-V8 blend is a great way to cool down on a hot day.


  • Celery salt, for the glass
  • 1 bottle Dos Equis, chilled
  • 1/2 cup V8 juice, chilled
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 shot tequila (optional)


  • Rim a chilled large beer glass with celery salt, then fill with ice. Add the beer, V8 juice, lemon juice, and hot sauce to taste. Serve with the tequila shot, if you like.
