The Alternative Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary has been a classic cocktail for as far back as the 1920s, when New York bartender Pete Petiot created a basic, undeveloped version, but christened it the Red Snapper. We can’t think of anything better than enjoying a Ketel One Bloody Mary with brunch, however times have moved on and we understand that not everyone enjoys a tomato based Bloody Mary, which got us thinking…

The Bloody Mary is a drink of balance and slight culinary understanding, therefore if you don’t want your main component to be tomato juice then… it doesn’t have to be! One of our good bartender friends once said to me “If you define a Bloody Mary as a savoury and restorative cocktail, then you can have fun experimenting with the ingredients.”

With this in mind our bartender friends and family have been busy creating some of the world’s best alternative Bloody Marys. We have been experimenting with carrots, beetroot, lettuce.. the list goes on. With careful measuring and mixing we are ready to share our three recipes with you:

Light & Fresh

50ml Ketel One Vodka
30ml fresh-squeezed orange citrus
80ml juice – cut up a ¼ quarter head of lettuce, ¼ of a cucumber & 2 single stalks of celery to put through the juicer
Spices – finely chop some chilli & grate a fresh chunk of ginger

Add all these ingredients to your glass, stir vigorously & fill with ice before garnishing ornately

Sweet & Upbeat

50ml Ketel One Vodka
15ml fresh-squeezed lime citrus
80ml juice – take ½ a granny-smith apple, ½ a pear and a decent-size carrot to put through the juicer
Spices – take a few pink peppercorns and fennel seeds and smash them in a mortar & pestle
1tsp Horseradish

Add all these ingredients to your glass, stir vigorously & fill with ice before garnishing ornately

Bold & Savoury

50ml Ketel One Vodka
10ml fresh-squeezed lemon citrus
80ml juice blend – take a whole beetroot and cut into quarters and two ripe tomatoes, then put through the juicer
Spices – add a pinch of ground cinnamon, grate some nutmeg and a pile of smashed cloves

Add all these ingredients to your glass, stir vigorously & fill with ice before garnishing ornately

Invite your friends and family round for a Ketel One brunch and create one of our alternative Bloody Marys.
