5 of the Best Bloody Mary Recipes with SaladPower

Emily Cooper, RD. 

     No weekend brunch is complete without what else but …alcohol! Call it hair of the dog if you want, but we are all about those 10 AM Bloody Marys. What other cocktail can say it’s loaded with veggies AND vodka? Didn’t think so. Here’s five ways you can turn your SaladPower into happy hour, Bloody Mary style. 

 

The Basic

makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup Just Veggies SaladPower

1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoons fresh horseradish

½ teaspoon hot sauce

¼ teaspoon pepper

¼ teaspoon salt

For serving:

Ice

1 cup vodka

Celery sticks / pickle spears (optional)

Directions:

Whisk together all ingredients in a 1 quart pitcher or glass container with lid.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

To serve, add ice to 4 glasses.

Add 2 ounces of vodka and 4 ounces of mix to each glass.

Garnish with celery sticks or pickle spears if desired. 

Once you’ve mastered this classic cocktail, it’s time to pull out the big guns in the SaladPower bloody mary arsenal. Here’s 4 variations of the basic to keep the party going from lunch ‘til brunch. 

The Pineapple Mary 

Put a tropical twist on the classic by replacing the Just Veggies SaladPower in the recipe above with the Veggies + Pineapple variety. Garnish with a wedge of fresh pineapple, cocktail umbrella, or any fruit you have on hand for some extra tropical flair.

Mango Tango Foxtrot

Give your bloody mary the perfect balance of sweet and spicy by using Veggies + Mango SaladPower instead of the original flavor. Replace the black pepper with 1 teaspoon of chili powder, and garnish with fresh mango or lime wedges, and a chili lime salt rim when you’re down to tango.

 

The Tropicali

Bust out the tiki cups for this one my friends! Add ½ cup each of Veggies + Pineapple and Veggies + Mango SaladPower instead of the Just Veggies in the basic recipe. Garnish with as many tropical fruits as you can fit in your glass, or serve out of a coconut for some extra beach-worthy bartending points.

The Scorcher

This one ain’t for the faint of heart. Double up the hot sauce used in the original recipe, and garnish with a heavy sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Add a chili powder and cayenne salt rim for an extra mouth-scorching cocktail that is sure to spice up your regular ol’ brunch party festivities.

Understanding the "Naturalistic Fallacy"
Understanding the "Naturalistic Fallacy"

May 31, 2017 1 Comment

The Naturalistic Fallacy is a philosophical concept that what is found in nature is “pleasurable” and therefore “ethical” and anything that is “not pleasurable” is “unethical”. This coincides with the notion in the world of health and wellness that you should only purchase raw and organic foods with a short list of ingredients that you can pronounce. Though this may be true in some cases when it comes to food, it isn’t always accurate and in fact can be dangerous if you blindly follow this philosophy. We call this the Naturallistic Fallacy in the world of food. Continue reading to find out why!
