Bloody Mary Smoothie Recipe

There’s nothing I like better on a weekend morning than brunch, bluegrass and a Bloody Mary. During our stay  in Isla Bastimentos, Panama, when you run out of Bloody Mary Mix, a quick run to the store is not in the cards. But it ended up being the greatest thing that could have happened, because Lloyd came up with this Bloody Mary Smoothie:

Ingredients

  • fresh tomatoes
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • salt + pepper
  • lime juice (we squeezed from fresh limes!)
  • ice
  • vodka
  • Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce

Method

Add ingredients to taste and blend.

Notes

We used Belvedere Vodka (my migraines make me a liquor snob by default). If I could have run to the store, I would have added celery salt. You can also use tomato juice instead of whole tomatoes. We probably would have, but again, used what we had. And it turned out I was glad we didn’t have canned tomato paste, bloody mary mix or tomato juice, because using all fresh ingredients made it taste truly (big surprise) fresh! Necessity truly is the mother of invention.

Also, we added ice after we blended and served on the rocks but decided it would be best to blend the ice into the Bloody the next time around. It’s the perfect refreshing, savory summer cocktail!

What’s your favorite summer cocktail?
