An easy, healthy Virgin Bloody Mary drink recipe, perfect for pregnancy and non-drinkers. Packed with nutrients and tastes great.
If you’re looking for a delicious non-alcoholic cocktail recipe that also contains 1 serve of your daily veggie requirements – you’ve found it in this Virgin Bloody Mary drink!
My take on a traditional Bloody Mary has a beautiful mix of tangy tomato, refreshing lime, savoury Worcestershire and spicy Tabasco.
Tomato juice is packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin A, B vitamins, potassium, and magnesium. It’s also loaded with antioxidants.
Make sure you choose a good quality, preferably organic tomato juice. 1 cup of high quality tomato juice = 1 serve of vegetables.
Rimming The Glass
You don’t have it rim the glass, but I find it adds a nice finish .I used a mix of salt and celery salt for the rim. Place about half a tablespoon of each in a shallow saucer and give it a little mix. You’ll have some excess that can be saves for next time.
Using a small piece of lime, moisten the outside of the glass. Its up to you how thick you want your rim to be but I find a thin rim works well. Make sure to rim the outside of the glass only, or the salt with stick to the inside and you’ll end up with floaties in your Virgin Bloody Mary!
Once the rim is moistened, gently place the glass upside down on the saucer. You might need to turn it on its side a little as you work your way around. If you don’t get it right the first time, just wash it off and try again.
This Virgin Mary drink tastes great when left to ‘marinate’ for a few hours or even overnight, so it’s the perfect mocktail to make it advance.
You can also easily multiply the quantities and serve in a jug for guests.
I hope you enjoy this Virgin Bloody Mary drink as much as I loved creating it!
