Green Bloody Mary
St. Patrick’s Day is the day to celebrate all things Irish, and you might be wondering what your drink of choice should be. You don’t have to go with the classic tomato-based Bloody Mary since this new recipe will take your taste buds on a whole new level.
The Green Bloody Mary cocktail is made up of tomatillos, yellow tomatoes, lime, vodka, celery seeds, and horseradish—the combination creates that extra sour and spicy kick that you might not feel in your “red” Bloody Mary.
So if you want an experience that doesn't only get better as it goes down but also tastes different than anything else out there, maybe give this one a shot.
1½ lb. Tomatillos, husked and quartered
1 cup Yellow cherry tomatoes
3 Cucumbers, small and chopped
2 Jalapeños, stemmed, seeds removed and chopped
2 Cloves garlic, peeled
1 Lime, juiced
1 tbsp. Horseradish
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1 tsp. Celery seed
1½ cup Vodka
Old bay for rimming
6 Cooked bacon strips for garnish
In a blender, combine all ingredients except for the vodka.
Blend well until smooth and silky.
Add the mixture and vodka together in a large pitcher. Stir well.
Place the old bay on a small, shallow plate. Rim 4 glasses with a lime wedge, then dip rims into the old bay.
Divide the drink into several glasses and garnish with bacon strips.
