"Is it a Bloody Mary if it isn’t red? Some folks might disagree with us, but I say yes! By most definitions, a traditional Bloody Mary is a drink that contains vodka and tomato juice. This iteration of a Bloody Mary is called a Green Mary and uses tomatillos instead of tomatoes. Keep in mind that these tomatillos add a more tart, vegetal flavor than the traditional tomato, and although tomatillos may look like green tomatoes, they are not tomatoes at all. Add horseradish, cumin, salt, pepper, and even a handful of golden tomatoes to bring back some sweetness. The tartness also pairs well with jalepeño-infused vodka, which you can make at home by steeping sliced jalepeños in vodka for 12 – 24 hours. Just make sure to check it every so often so that it doesn’t get too spicy. And even if it does, you can always add regular vodka to bring the spiciness down a notch. Green Marys may look a little whacky, but they’re excellent accompaniments to richer brunch foods, where you might want something that will cut through heavier foods like waffles, hollandaise sauce, breakfast burritos, French toast and frittatas. So, think of Kermit and try something a little greener next time!"
