The Perfectly Skinny Bloody Mary Cocktail

Although the origin of this drink is disputed, some believe Pete Petiot, a bartender at Harry’s New York bar in Paris created it.  In 1933, Petiot introduced it in America, when he joined the St. Regis Hotel.  It was first called “Red Snapper” but once the Tabasco was added it became known as the “Bloody Mary.”  Later in 1960, it became popular to serve this cocktail with celery, thanks to a guest at The Pump Room at the Ambassador East Hotel in Chicago.  These days, the Bloody Mary can be enjoyed in a variety of ways- with beer instead of tomato juice, extra spicy peppers, or even with gin, rum or tequila.  I’m using good-for-you tomato juice and dressing it with celery and cucumber. Whichever way you choose to make it, the grown-ups will surely enjoy it!

Prep Time: 5 minutes


Ingredients

6 limes, juiced

3 tablespoons prepared horseradish

2 quarts tomato juice

1-2 tablespoons Tabasco Sauce, or to taste

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Fresh ground pepper to taste

1½ cup vodka, chilled in the freezer

6 stalks celery, for garnish

6 slices cucumber, for garnish


Instructions

1. In a pitcher, combine the lime juice and horseradish.  Pour in the tomato juice, Tabasco Sauce and Worcestershire sauce: season with pepper to taste.  Stir all to combine.

2. Divide the vodka among 6 tall glasses filled with ice.  Add the Bloody Mary mix and stir to combine.

3. Garnish each with one celery stock and cucumber slice.

Makes 6 cocktails


Food Facts

Some feel that the Bloody Mary helps cure hangovers and so that’s why it’s popular to serve in the morning.  Make it without liquor and it’s called a Virgin Mary or also called Contrary Mary.

Tabasco Sauce has been around since the 1800’s.  It’s a fiery sauce made from Tabasco peppers, vinegar, and salt.  The Tabasco pepper is a very hot, small, red Chile that originated in the Mexican state of Tabasco.


Healthy Benefits

The Bloody Mary actually has some good nutritional value thanks to the tomato juice.  It contains lycopene, which is an antioxidant found in tomatoes.  Lycopene has been shown to help reduced the risk of some cancers.

    [...] And since I technically prefer a pungent Bloody Mary anyway, let’s trade a fruity mimosa for this slimmed down Bloody version. [...]
