Step 3: Next, slice the two large jalapenos in half lengthwise and then in half lengthwise again. Then de-seed them.

Step 6: Add 3 ounces of the infused vodka (per Bloody Mary) to the cocktail shaker.

Step 7: Add in ¾ cup of the Bloody Mary mix to the cocktail shaker. Next, add in the hot sauce, the Worcestershire sauce and the 2 teaspoons of black pepper.

Step 8: Next, cut one lime into four slices and squeeze the lime so the fresh juice goes into the cocktail shaker.

Step 9: Cut the other lime into 8 slices for the garnish and set them aside.

Step 10: Secure the top on the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously several times.

Step 10: Turn your glass upside down into the shallow bowl of water. Next, place the glass upside down in the shallow dish with the salt & pepper mixture and twist it until the rim is coated.
