A variation of the Canadian classic. The BBQ blend adds a smoky spike to the thick, umami clamato. Be careful in your hot sauce selection- the spices add a good bit of heat themselves.
To rim the glass, mix the BBQ blend with the salt and spread on a plate. Rub the lemon wedge around the rim of the glass to moisten it, then turn the glass upside down and dip it in the spice and salt mixture. Make sure the rim is well coated with spices.
To mix the cocktail, put the ice cubes in the glass first. Add the Clamato, Worcestershire, and tabasco. Add the whiskey and give it a light stir. Garnish with pickle and lemon wedge. Serve.
