  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt , divided

  • *Horseradish can vary wildly , so taste before adding and keep in mind that the heat often intensifies after a few hours.
  1. Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, garlic, and parsley in the pitcher of your blender and blend until very smooth. If desired, strain mixture with a fine mesh sieve. Stir in about a 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and celery seed. Set in fridge to chill for at least an hour.
  2. Stir in lime juice, horseradish, and Tabasco to the tomato mixture. Taste and adjust seasoning or acid levels as needed.
  3. Mix up a 1/2 teaspoon each sea salt and black pepper on a plate. Swipe the rim of a highball or Collins glass with a lime wedge and dip in salt and pepper mixture. Carefully fill glasses with ice, pour in Bloody Maria mix, and top off with 1 - 1 1/2 ounces tequila. Give everything a quick stir. Garnish with chives and a slice of lime. Serve immediately.
