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).
