For the bloody mary

  • 2 1/2 ounces Pomi tomato juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/8 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning, plus extra for rimming the glass
  • dash celery seed
  • a few dashes of hot sauce
  • a lobster mac and cheese grilled cheese for garnish!
  • lobster claw meat for garnish
  • celery stalk for garnish
  • pickled jalapeños for ganrish
  • pepperoncinis for garnish

For the lobster mac and cheese grilled cheeses

  • 2 slices of your favorite hearty bread (I used sourdough)
  • softened butter for spreading
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated white cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup lobster mac and cheese


For the bloody mary

  1. Moisten the edges of your glass with a lemon wedge and rim in old bay. Fill your glass with crushed ice. Add the tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, Worcestershire, horseradish, old bay, celery seed, and hot sauce. Stir vigorously to combine. Garnish with a celery stalk, a lemon wedge, a pepperoncini, a few pickled jalapeños, and finish with the lobster mac and cheese grilled cheese skewer!

For the lobster mac grilled cheese

  1. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Butter the outsides of the bread slices, and top both sides of insides of bread with the grated cheddar, half on each side. Top one slice with the mac and cheese, and carefully top with other bread half (basically, you want the cheese on both sides to envelope the mac and cheese!). Place sandwich in skillet (I added a little butter to the pan too), and toast on each side for 3-4 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and bread is golden brown. Remove from pan, let sit for a minute and cut in half. Thread sandwich on a wooden or bamboo skewer for the drink!
