Fresh Tomato Bloody Marys

  • SERVINGS: Makes 4 drinks

The ingredients for Andreas Viestad's fiery Bloody Mary all come from his garden. Like a classic Bloody Mary made with tomato juice, it's a delicious brunch cocktail—with or without vodka. For savory flavor, add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce to each drink.


  1. 2 small celery ribs, minced
  2. 2 tablespoons minced onion
  3. 1 medium green heirloom tomato, such as a Green Zebra, minced
  4. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  5. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  6. Salt
