Virgin Bloody Mary

Fancy a Bloody Mary, but a dry challenge? Make this Virgin Bloody Mary aka the Virgin Mary and you won’t miss the vodka!

Virgin Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is one of the most popular brunch cocktails. This cocktail version is full of flavor – spicy, hearty and salty. It’s perfect when you want a cocktail without alcohol. Of course, if you want to add some vodka, go for it! For more drink recipes without alcohol, try my nojito (a mojito without rum) and salpicón (a Colombian fruit drink).

I’m starting a dry challenge this month, I did one in November. Why? A few reasons:

That being said, I’ll be sharing more cocktail recipes here. If you have any inquiries please let me know in the comments!

When choosing a tomato juice, be sure to read the labels. Certain types of tomato juice can be high in sodium and contain added sugars. Look for a low-sodium tomato juice with no added fruit or sugar.
