Even the most ardent Bloody Mary fans can get a little bored with the traditional recipe every now and then. After all, how many times in a row can you drink vodka-spiked tomato juice?

This unique, zesty take on the classic—using Scotch whisky and garnished with bacon—is the most flavorful way to get you out of your Bloody Mary funk.
