Bloody Maria (Cocktail) #SundaySupper

It's time for our annual #SundaySupper Halloween party!  When I think of a Halloween party, I envision all kinds of fun foods that looks like something you wouldn't normally eat, and regular foods (and beverages) with spooky and ghoulish names.  That's why for this year Halloween Extravaganza, I'm serving up a cocktail whose name is just perfect for a ghoulish Halloween party...Bloody Marias.  

Bloody Marias are the Mexican cousin of the classic Bloody Mary Cocktail because they're made with tequila instead of vodka.  And because tomato juice is a little hard to come by in my small town, I use V8 juice instead.  (I've also made these Bloody Marias with Clamato.)  And to spice things up a bit, I add a little salsa Valentina (my favorite bottled salsa).

Before I share the recipe, I apologize for the photo.  I'm having technical difficulties with getting the photos from my camera to my computer, so I'm using a photo I shot with my tablet.
