Scary Mary


  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 6 ounces carrot juice
  • 1 ounce California Black Ripe Olive brine
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
  • 2-3 teaspoons horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Celery stalks, scallions, radish, lemon wheels, green olive, black olive, cocktail onions, refrigerator pickle rounds, pickled jalapeƱos, fresh mozzarella with black salt, and radish with olive eyeballs (garnish)


In a shaker, muddle the chives in the vodka until the vodka has a slight green hue. Strain the vodka into a new martini shaker or a measuring pitcher, and add the carrot juice, California Black Ripe Olive brine, Tabasco sauce, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix well, then pour into a highball filled with ice. Garnish with California black olives and serve.

*For a non-alcoholic version, omit the vodka.
