Bloody Mary Chicken Wings with Creamy Horseradish Dip

By John Dillon

Who said you have to DRINK a Bloody Mary? Well, if you love Dizzy Pig, Bloody Marys, and chicken wings, this recipe is for you! The lemon and pepper notes in Dizzy Pig’s “Shakin’ the Tree” seasoning & Bloody Mary Mix pair extremely well together. Add in a creamy Horseradish dip and you get all the flavors of a great Bloody Mary that has elements of heat, sweetness, tanginess — plus a kiss of smoke!

This recipe makes 2-3 servings as a meal, or 4-5 servings as an appetizer.

Hair of the Pig Bloody Mary Chicken Wings

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1-2 Tbsp Dizzy Pig Shakin’ the Tree lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 2 cups Bloody Mary Mix — use your favorite brand (I used “Hair of the Pig”)
  • 2-3 Tbsp brown sugar (or more as needed to balance out a spicy Bloody Mary mix)

Shakin’ the Tree Creamy Horseradish Dip

  • 1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-3 Tbsp of prepared Horseradish (season it to your taste)
  • Juice & zest of 1 Lime (can also use Lemon)
  • Dizzy Pig Shakin’ the Tree seasoning (1-2 Tbsp should do but season it to your preference)



  1. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and toss with Shakin’ the Tree seasoning and celery seed for a nice starting layer of flavor.
  2. Mix the Bloody Mary Mix and Brown Sugar together in a different bowl. I like my Bloody Mary to be spicy, so I only use 2 Tbsp to add some sweetness. But, this is where you can add more to balance it out if it’s too spicy.
  3. Reserve a 1/2 cup of Bloody Mary mixture to use for brushing on wings during cook. Pour the rest of the mixture over the wings and toss.
  4. Optional Step: You can marinade the wings for 1-2 hours (or overnight) in the fridge to allow the marinade to impart a more robust flavor. For this cook, I let them sit in the marinade as I fired up the smoker and came to temp.
  5. Fire up the smoker or grill to 350°F. I prefer a smoker to give a “smoke kiss” to my wings — adds another layer of flavor.

Shakin’ the Tree Horseradish Dip

  1. Super simple! Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. I seasoned with Dizzy Pig Shaking the Tree seasoning at the end to get it right where it hit the spot for me.
  2. Put in fridge ’til ready to eat

Cooking & Plating

  1. Put the wings on smoker/grill and occasionally flip and brush with the reserved Bloody Mary mixture.
  2. Wings should take 30-40 minutes, depending on how you like your wings. I like a rich, dark color on my Bloody Mary Wings.
  3. Plate the “Hair of the Pig” Bloody Mary Chicken Wings. I placed them on a platter with some Pork Rinds and the Horseradish Dip and garnished with chopped green onions.
