It’s time for #MuffinMonday again and this month we are a little late since we postponed the recipes to today because of the Christmas holiday. I am finishing out the year with something that reminds me of New Years Day which is a Bloody Mary cocktail albeit this one is a muffin!

I’ve added all the ingredients that are applicable to that drink so that the flavor does remind. The pine nuts are extra but they do go with the taste and round that out. Bloody Mary Muffins

As savory muffins go these will be perfect for a New Year’s Day brunch, especially with something like scrambled eggs or frittata.

The ingredients does seem a bit pesky being long, but we have to build the flavors for our own bloody mary mixer in there, so to speak. I really enjoyed these and thought they were a great change of pace not being sweet. I do like savory breads. I hope you like them as much as I do.

Bloody Mary Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Stir together the vodka, olive brine, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce and tomato paste just to thin out the paste enough to mix with other ingredients, then add all other ingredients except the pine nuts and stir just enough to blend.
  3. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and divide the batter in it.
  4. Top batter with pine nuts, pressing down lightly so they stick.
  5. Bake for twenty minutes or until  a toothpick can be inserted and removed clean.
  6. Cool in pan five minutes, then turn out and finish cooling on a wire rack.
