Garnishes as desired: olives, celery stalk, crisp bacon, pickled carrots, etc.
Place 2 TBSP of Everything seasoning into a spice blender or mortar and pestle to grind the larger pieces. Reserve 2 tsp of ground spice mix and place the remaining onto a small level plate. Rub the rims of four tall glasses with a lemon wedge then coat the rims by dipping them into the plated spice mix.
In a blender, combine the full jar of Marinara, cold water, Worcestershire sauce, Aleppo Hot Sauce, reserved Everything spices and juice of half lemon; blend until smooth. Adjust spice and saltiness to your liking. Fill each of the prepared glasses with ice cubes. Pour measured vodka into glass.
