The Slaughterhouse

Stay away from the farm tonight, it’s been transformed into The Slaughterhouse! This left turn away from a Bloody Mary has beef stock in it and is garnished with smoked sausage. It’s a savory beverage sure to reinforce any weary party animal in need of refreshment when the rooster crows the first morning of November. The crisp, clean flavor of TOPO Distillery’s Organic Vodka perfectly balances the rich backdrop of beef and spice.


  • 4 cups tomato juice
  • 4 cups unsalted beef stock
  • 6 oz. TOPO Organic Vodka
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeños, minced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, minced
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • The juice of a lemon
  • The juice of a lime
  • Smoked sausages as garnish


1. To make a batch of The Slaughterhouse, begin by combining the beef stock, tomato juice, garlic powder and paprika into a medium sauce pot and warm over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce the liquid uncovered until it has gone down by half. An easy way to keep track of the level is to dip the handle of wooden spoon into the pot and then use a rubber band to mark the original level. It should take around 30 minutes to reduce by half. Once done, remove from the heat and season with a few cracks of black pepper. Make sure to taste the liquid before adding any salt as it likely won’t need it after being concentrated. Allow to cool completely.

2. In a pitcher, combine the tomato juice and beef stock concentrate along with the TOPO Organic Vodka and the rest of the ingredients. Fill the pitcher with ice and then split across four to six glasses. Feel free to garnish this drink however you please, but here are some suggestions: slices of lemons or limes, slices of seared kielbasa or a few warm cocktail sausages on skewered on a toothpick. A strip of bacon wouldn’t hurt either!
