Sometimes a wing sauce is sooooo good you have to decide between using it on your wings or just drinking it straight up. Now, I didn’t use Vodka or any other booze in this sauce, and honestly, it doesn’t need it. You get great Bloody Mary flavors with a hint of Buffalo sauce kick. It’s crazy good, and perhaps the best scratch-made wing sauce I’ve ever had.
The idea for Bloody Mary wings hit me after Anita had me make a batch of Bloody Mary glass rim seasoning. After tasting it I knew instantly that I needed to use it on wings. For the sauce you make your pretty standard Buffalo wing sauce with the addition of Bloody Mary seasoning and mix.
If you prefer to add booze just put a splash or two of Vodka in the wing sauce. Or, if you prefer your wings ‘dry’, skip the sauce. The wings are absolutely divine seasoned with just the Bloody Mary seasoning mix, just add a few more pinches to the wings after they are cooked and toss.
Also try my Bloody Mary steaks.I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.
