{friday cocktail: green bloody mary}

For a long time I was strictly a mimosa drinker for brunch situations, but in the past couple years I have become a full blown bloody mary convert.  In partnership with Pinnacle Vodka, I'm bringing you a fabulous way to enjoy your bloody mary at brunch this weekend in the form of a green bloody mary.  Using lots of fresh green veggies like tomatillos, peppers  and cucumber, I mixed up a green bloody mary base that is almost healthy enough that you might forget it's actually a cocktail.   In fact you could probably add some kale to this recipe and consider it your green juice for the day!

Despite how much healthy veggie ingredients are here, this mix is delightfully flavorful and a nice change from the normal red tomato bloody- sometimes you just gotta switch it up.  You can see my classic bloody mary recipe right here and a unique korean inspired version here.   Scroll down for both the green bloody mary base recipe and the cocktail recipe- as always make sure to get your garnish on!

Green Bloody Mary Base:

what you need:

  • 1 cucumber 
  • 6 tomatillos
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 4 stalks of celery
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 Roasted and skinned pasilla pepper*
  • 1 roasted and skinned green bell pepper*
  • salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste
*the roasted part of these peppers makes them taste super yummy, but roasting them is a totally optional step. we just got excited about getting out in the sunshine and grilling stuff. ya know? 

  1. Peel skin off roasted peppers and chop.  Peel, de-seed and chop cucumber.  Roughly chop parsley and tomatillos (leave skin on).  Juice limes.
  2. Puree all chopped ingredients in a food processor or blender until well combined.  
  3. Strain entire mixture into serving container.
  4. Add salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.
  5. Mixture should keep in the fridge for a few days, but I wouldn't push it too far!
