Infused: Fuzzy Zoeller Cocktails for Indianapolis 500 Include Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary Maker

Although the Infused Top 10 Indianapolis 500-inspired Cocktails List was published a couple of weeks ago, (click here to read and drool) these recipes have been submitted to me by Fuzzy Zoeller's Ultimate Premium Vodka, the official vodka for the IZOD IndyCar Series.

The folks here at Infused thought these deserve a mention as well, particularly as they include the high-quality mixer from Indiana's cocktail mix goddess Hoosier Momma. At Fuzzy's Happy Hour for the media in Indianapolis Motor Speedway's Pagoda's 5th floor plush club, some of these tasty drinks were available for tasting.

So I did.

Fuzzy’s Checkered Flag Lemonade  and Fuzzy’s Start Your Engines Hoosier Mary won top spots and are part of the collection of recipes below. Shake, stir or pour, whatever your preference, and let me know which is your favorite.
