How to Make the Perfect Red Snapper (Bloody Mary with a Twist)

perfect Red snapper

Red Snapper

Our Kimchi Gin is really unique, with its distinct, savoury flavour its makes for the perfect Red Snapper ingredient. The Red Snapper is essentially the same as a Bloody Mary but with a gin base instead of vodka. Its a refreshing drink famously used as a little pick me up and often found on a brunch table, its spicy, tomato tastes incredible with the smooth, tangy taste of our Kimchi Gin! We have two approaches to this one, if you really like making it from scratch we have the method here of course but we’ve also got a recommendation for you, its a really delicious spiced tomato juice from Turner Hardy and Co, we think you’ll love as much as we do! 


Also a a side note our cocktail recipes do not require you to have a cocktail shaker because we like to provide a drink that you can make from scratch with little to no equipment, that being said if you do have one and would like to use it please do, simple pop your ingredients in there instead of straight into a glass and give the whole thing a shake then strain it into your glass  


  • A large handful of Ice
  • Turner Hardy and co’s ‘The lively one’ tomato juice.
  • 50ml Kimchi Gin
  • A celery stick to garnish
  • Add some Tabasco to taste (the juice does have some spice in)
  • A slice of Lemon to garnish

Or If you prefer…

  • large handful of ice
  • 50ml of Kimchi Gin
  • Plain tomato juice
  • 1 tsp lemon juice, plus 2 slices to serve
  • a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  • few shakes Tabasco (smoked Tabasco is nice)
  • pinch celery salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 celery sticks,

The instructions are more or less the same regardless of which method you have chosen however, obviously if you’re making it from scratch you’ll be adding more ingredients in! 
  • Fill your glass half full of ice
  • Add all the ingredients to the glass 
  • top it up with the tomato juice
  • Stir well making sure all the flavours meld together
  • Add half a celery garnish
