Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe red tomatoes
  • One 9-inch English cucumber, peeled and chopped (2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh horseradish

How to make this recipe

  1. In a blender, puree the tomatoes with the cucumber, dill, horseradish, lemon juice and dried mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Strain the mix through a fine-mesh sieve set over a pitcher, pressing on the solids. You should have 3 cups of Bloody Mary mix.
