We just read the greatest news: According to a nutritionist interviewed by the Daily Mail, a Bloody Mary absolutely counts as one of the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables we are all supposed to consume every day. In fact, the popular brunch drink is absolutely packed with potassium, thanks to the tomato juice. The newspaper notes that maybe a Virgin Mary is better—but we’ll ignore that. Here, eight (relatively) healthy Bloody Marys.
1. Kimchi Bloody Mary
This clever Bloody Mary variation gets its heat and flavor from pureed kimchi, along with a dash of Sriracha.
2. Aviary’s Bloody Mary
Make this deconstructed Bloody Mary year-round with bottled tomato juice, though fresh, ripe summer tomatoes are preferable. As the colorful flavored ice cubes melt in the cocktail, they slowly season the drink.
