The Boogie Down Mary

We love how many original gangsters hail from BX: Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, KRS-One, Kool Keith, Funkmaster Flex to name a few and of course, the fiercely beautiful voice of Mary J. Blige. 

We've created a twist on a classic cocktail to cheers all these amazing BX musical legends with the help of the Bronx Hot Sauce


  • 1 ½ oz vodka, we like Tito’s!

  • 3 oz tomato juice

  • the juice of 1 lemon

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 3 drops of Bronx Hot Sauce

  • Salt-n-Pepa

  • 1⁄4 teaspoon celery salt

  • 1⁄2 tablespoon prepared horseradish


  • Add ice to a tall glass.

  • Mix Vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Bronx hot sauce, salt, pepper, celery salt and horseradish (if using) and pour in glass.

  • Garnish with a wedge of lemon, a stalk of celery, asparagus spears, and assorted olives

Serving Suggestion: Enjoy and boogie down to some  classic hip hop off The Gravy's Bread + Butter playlist.
