Bloody Mary – Tomato Juice

When Life gives you Lemons – You make Lemonade… SO when Life give you Tomatoes, you make Tomato Juice! We have been enjoying our garden fresh tomatoes for more than a month. I am getting to a point that I am sick and tired of chopping to make bruschetta and tomato salad and salsa though. It is time to give my blender a work-out to help ‘deal with’ my tomatoes! We loved Habanero Tomato Soup last week and since my Bloody Mary loving Grandma was home from her trip & coming to visit I had no other option but tomato juice!

The flavor of this juice was wholesome & pretty good (mom was not a fan of it).  I’m not sure what I would & should change but I know that I want to experiment some more [next year probably]… any suggestions!?

“Raw” Bloody Mary Mix

roughly based on Our Share of the Harvest

(make about 1 quart)

  • 2 pounds tomatoes, washed, cored and halved
  • 1 yellow onion, quartered
  • 1- 2 celery stalks
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1-2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Throw all ingredients in the blender – blend until smooth. Taste, adjust as needed. Refrigerate for a few hours (or overnight +) to let all of the flavors meld.

Serve with some Habanero Infused Vodka and a stalk of celery. Enjoy responsibly!

And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… Tomatoes are a Fruit, Lemons are a Fruit… what is your favorite “Fruit Juice”?

  1. How about bringing some on Wednesday night? I’ll have to try the mix . . . it seems cheaper than buying it bottled and much better for you (as better as Bloody Mary mix can be).

  2. Mmmm…One of my favorite drinks to order when we go out for brunch! 🙂
