Like Italians with their tomato sauce, home cooks across North Africa and the Middle East are serious about their harissa. Each cook has his or her own special method for grinding the chiles and blending in oil, garlic and spices. That’s why our harissa is bound to family tradition.

Thick, vibrantly red and lusciously textured, our piquant chile condiment recipe is inspired by Ron’s mother Linor, who was taught how to make it by her mother after their family immigrated from Morocco to Israel. The name harissa comes from the Arabic word meaning “to break,” which likely stems from the mashing of the chiles. We blend three different chile varieties into every batch of our harissa. But even more than heritage, what really sets our harissa apart is its pure flavor and composition. We want the chiles to speak for themselves, and want you to find ways to put harissa on EVERYTHING, even in a classic Bloody Mary.

A few notes about this recipe:

  • If you like your Bloody Mary really spicy, add more harissa.
  • If you like your Bloody Mary a bit on the saltier side, add a pinch more salt or celery salt.
  • If you like your cocktails more on the sour side, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
  • And if you like a more classic Bloody Mary, add 1 teaspoon of jarred, prepared horseradish.
