Spicy Frozen Bloody Marys For Hot Summer Days


These taste like a traditional bloody mary, but add a frosty chill that is great for hot summer days. You can adjust the seasonings to suit your tastes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cored, seeded, diced ripe tomatoes
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz.) vodka or gin
  • Green olives for garnish, optional
  • Celery sticks for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Spread tomatoes and cucumber on a rimmed baking sheet and freeze until just frozen, about 45 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, mix frozen vegetables, tomato juice, lemon juice, sriracha, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Pulse until mixture is a fine slush, scraping down sides of bowl a few times if necessary. If pieces are too frozen to process, leave mixture to thaw at room temperature for 5 minutes and try again.
  3. Add vodka or gin to food processor and pulse once to mix. Divide mixture between 2 glasses. Garnish with olives and celery and serve with straws, if desired.
