#DOTW: Tomatillo Bloody Mary

Happy Weekend!! Going to brunch? Making brunch? Bloody Marys are an essential part of weekend brunch, and I really, really like them. I have made a few myself, and I just upped the game by making a Bloody Mary with Tomatillos instead of tomatoes. Can you say delicious? This is just so good. I garnished mine with a tortilla chip, just because it reminded me of green salsa, but be creative! Pick your own garnish!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound tomatillos, trimmed and quartered
  • 6 oz yellow or orange cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced thick
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Serrano or Thai chile
  • 2 oz Vdka 6100
  • fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 tsp green hot sauce
  • 1 tsp horseraddish
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp celery salt

Combine all ingredients, except the vodka, in a blender. Blend until very smooth. Fill a glass with ice, pour in Vkda 6100, add the tomatillo mix. Garnish and enjoy!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
