From Hot, Hotter, Hottest by Janet Hazen. Here's what she says about this drink. If in fact you are suffering from a hangover, it might be best to have someone else prepare this mix! On the other hand, if you expect a hangover, make the mix the night before--it will taste even better the second day. If you want to use regular vodka for the cocktails, feel free, but this special peppery version is sensational in Bloody Marys (and even better taken straight from a frozen shot glass). A less traditional garnish would be a pickled jalapeño slit to the stem on the rim of each glass.
