Recipe: Fresh Tomato Juice Bloody Mary

Posted Aug 18 2012 7:27pm

I rarely make cocktails at home.  My husband doesn’t drink, which makes me the default lush of the family.  There are times when the stars align and a cocktail makes perfect sense.  Today the weather was gorgeous.  My CSA handed out extra tomatoes and I needed to use them before they went bad.

Bloody Marys are a savory tooth’s dream.  I usually have them as a special treat out at brunch, but with extra tomatoes, a juicer, perfect weather on a Saturday afternoon, magazines that needed reading, and a patio with a comfy couch – I couldn’t resist.

I had never had a bloody mary with fresh tomato juice before – it’s completely delicious.
