Nothing says Happy New Year like a refreshing, vegetarian Bloody Mary on New Year’s morning. And if you happen to wake up with a slight headache, this drink just might do the trick.
A great quality tomato juice is the key to a delicious Bloody Mary. You can usually find an excellent tomato juice in the juice or alcohol department at your local grocery store. If you are lucky enough to have an Italian section in your grocery store, check there.
Tito’s vodka is made from potatoes, so if you are worried about gluten, Tito’s is a brand you can use safely.
Adjust the hot sauce and the horseradish for your own personal taste, adding more or less depending on the amount of heat and spice that you like. I recommend at least a little horseradish for the flavor that it adds to the drink.
For garnish, I have seen everything under the sun stuffed onto the rim of the glass, and have been guilty of the same, fr. We do a Bloody Mary bar every year at our annual fishing derby and here are some of the garnishes that we like to put out:
- string cheese
- pickled asparagus
- dilly beans
- pearl onions
- grape tomatoes
This recipe is great with or without the vodka. I generally make mine virgin, but that is entirely up to you.
Please drink responsibly and please, please, please never drink and drive!
