When we see BBQ sauce and spice rubs on the meat counter at the local market we think, grilled meats (or fish), deliciously sloppy burgers and BBQ right? But why can't we use those ingredients in a dish where you wouldn't expect it? A dish that makes your friends insist you make when you come to visit and then fly in the ingredients to make it happen.
Here are some non-BBQ recipes using our line of S&S BBQ sauces and rubs (including those awesome street tacos):
Carolina Style Bloody Mary

1.5 oz. Good Vodka
