Bloody Mary

It’s officially 2019! Which means, you probably made a ton of our Bellinis (if you’re new here, feel free to check out the recipe!). As good as they are, sparkling wine can kinda knock you pretty good, huh? So, I thought of an easy and fun (not to mention healthy and delicious?) hang over cure!

I was raised in the Mississippi Delta, and a great Bloody Mary is a staple there! They’re always served at brunch (or as brunch depending on how many garnishes you add) and even at Bridge Club. Back in my catering days, we served a lot of them at golf tournaments. It certainly made the back nine interesting!

I’ve been improving this Bloody Mary recipe continually over the last 25 years, and I’m sure I won’t stop with this incarnation either. But for now, this is my favorite. And it tastes just as good without the vodka!
