Helllllo weekend! With spring officially here, bloody marys seemed like a great way to start off a Saturday. And why not mix it up with a fresh watermelon-tomato mix? The thick, spicy juice is a great compliment to this vodka I received from Our Vodka by Our Los Angeles. The bottle is so darling too, and looks great set out with the bloody mary toppings! Speaking of , aren’t bloody marys best when you get to build them yourself? While traditional toppings include olives and celery, I wanted to try switching it up with some colorful produce to brighten the bar. Some of the ingredients I selected included cubed watermelon, radishes, lemon wedges, yellow tomatoes, yellow chili peppers, basil, homemade pickled red onions, and himalayan sea salt. Hope you enjoy!
Watermelon Bloody Mary
1/2 c. Tomato juice
1/4 c. Watermelon puree*
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 -1/2 tsp. Hot sauce (depending on preference)
1/4 tsp. Celery salt
Juice from quarter of a lemon
3 oz. Vodka
Salt + pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together. Fill two glasses with ice and pour mixture into both. Add toppings of your choice and enjoy!
*Note: To make watermelon puree, place cubes of watermelon in blender and blend until smooth.
