Flamin’ Hot Cheetos will take your Bloody Mary to the next level

Brunch is a beloved meal—for good reason. It’s an excuse to cure hangovers by soaking up grease-filled foods and drinking boozy beverages before 10 a.m. See? What’s not to love? And now that this restaurant started topping its Bloody Mary cocktails with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, you’ll love the in-between breakfast and lunch meal even more!

You have the Center Hub Bar in Irvine, California to thank for this crispy concoction. They’re not only topping their Bloody Marys with spicy, crunchy Cheetos, but they’re also lining the rim in Cheeto dust. So, yeah. Consider this your new favorite mash-up.

Fortunately for those not in California, it’s not difficult to recreate this recipe at home. Tomato juice, vodka and a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are a few of the key ingredients you’ll need to whip this up in your very own kitchen.

Pulverizing the Cheetos in a food processor will make them just the right consistency for lining the rim of the glass. So you can easily incorporate this aspect into any Bloody Mary recipe.

You may want to give this version a go, considering Jamie Oliver has dubbed this the “Best Bloody Mary.”
