Green Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary has come a long way baby from tomato juice & vodka.  The myriad of spices and seasonings and sauces that can transform this drink is endless.  If I only owned a juicer….just think how cool and colorful Mary could become (hint hint).  Today we’ll stick with our every day humble blender and create a fresh crisp Green Bloody Mary.

~ Green Bloody Mary Recipe ~

For two cocktails, I used equal parts tomatillos, celery, cucumber, and green apple.  About 1 cup of each rough chopped, skins removed.

Add 2 tsp. prepared Horseradish sauce, 1-2 Tbl. diced jalapeno, juice of 1/2 lime, a pinch of sea salt & fresh cracked pepper, and a good handful of cilantro.

Throw it all in the blender and pulse until well blended.  I actually added a splash of juice to get my veggie tornado in motion (happened to be strawberry kiwi juice….keeping it green).

Rim glasses with a sea salt/celery seed blend.  Fill glasses with ice cubes.  Add 1 1/2 oz. chilled vodka.  Fill glass with juice mixture.

Garnish with celery, olives, jalapeno, lime, cilantro…your favorite green accents.

Cheers!!

It just so happens October 4th is National Vodka Day.  I don’t make these things up.  We had already planned dinner…a Bloody Mary Salad Dressing served over Avocado & Shrimp Salad, before we stumbled upon this tidbit of information.  So we decided to throw in a couple cocktail recipes.  Check out our Bloody Caesar Spicy Shrimp Shooters as well. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!!

Sadly we missed National Rum Day back in August….we’ll make up for it next year.
