The Bloody Mary is a classic brunch drink and it is fun to take it in different directions. This recipe uses guajillo and chipotle chiles to infuse the vodka with smokey and spicy flavors that complement most Bloody Mary mixes. This vodka is very spicy, for a more mellow, sipping style infusion I stick to using only 1 guajillo chile instead.
Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60°C).
Combine the chiles, tomatoes, and vodka in a sous vide bag or mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 2 hours.
Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the vodka if desired and store in a sealed container.
Combine the Bloody Mary mix and the infused vodka in a glass and stir to combine. Add the celery, sun-dried tomato, and chile strips as garnish, then serve.
