This is not the true ‘red eye beer recipe’ that actually consists of vodka and a raw egg (recipe below). However, this red beer recipe has been around for ages and is a fun twist on beer. Some call it a bloody mary. It’s not. It’s just beer and tomato juice with a few fixings. For more flavor, you can season it as you would a bloody mary. I’ve even cheated and added a large dash of bloody mary mix with the tomato juice because it is already seasoned and eliminates the need to add the additional ingredients.
1 12 oz light beer (save the expensive beer to drink on its own)
5 oz tomato juice
Dash tobacco hot sauce
Pinch celery salt or any seasoning sauce
In a tall glass or beer mug, combine the tomato juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and salt.
Pour in the beer and give it a good squeeze of lime. Ice is optional.
