About This Green Bloody Mary Recipe

The base green juice recipe tastes very similar to tomato juice, despite the fact that no tomatoes are included. Then, the addition of horseradish root and hot sauce make it a lip-smacking Bloody Mary.

What Makes This Green Bloody Mary Healthier?

Compared to a traditional Bloody Mary made with pre-made Bloody Mary mix, this recipe is healthier in at least 5 ways:

  1. No cane sugar. The inclusion of green apple steps in to add that little bit of sweetness a Bloody Mary requires -- with none of the processed junk.
  2. No gums. Gums (like xanthan gum and guar gum) can be tough on some people's digestive systems and often included in store-bought Bloody Mary mixes.
  3. Real fruits instead of fruit concentrates. Why use lemon juice concentrate when you can use an actual lemon?
  4. No nightshades. Nightshades are a class of vegetable that may cause digestive issues for some people. Our green Bloody Mary recipe excludes nightshades that are commonly found in pre-made mixes (tomatoes, paprika, red peppers).
  5. Many more nutrients. It may have been obvious that a freshly made juice has more nutrients than shelf-stable mixes, but it's still worth mentioning.

Speaking of nutrients, you will be hard pressed to find any cocktail recipes that are packed more with nutrients than this one. In fact, besides the 1.5 ounces vodka and "to taste" ingredients (kosher salt, pepper, and hot sauce), every part of this recipe has numerous nutritious upsides.

For example, cucumbers contain Vitamin K. Green apples have Vitamin C and Potassium. Kale has Vitamins K, A, and C, Manganese, and Copper. And this is far from an exhaustive list.

Pro Tips

  • For the best result, use a quality vodka - our favorite is our local Lockhouse Vodka, which is made right here in Buffalo, NY.
  • Are you not a fan of hot sauce? Substitute jalapeno!
  • You may prefer celery salt instead of salt or lime juice instead of lemon juice. Experiment to your heart's content!
  • Try adding fresh cilantro if you like that flavor.
