Fresh Heirloom Tomato Bloody Mary Recipe
Fresh Heirloom Tomato Bloody Mary Recipe Made with PAU Maui Vodka
One of my favorite bloody marys that I’ve ever had is the Ol’ Yellow Bloody Mary from a local San Diego restaurant. A fresh, made-from-scratch, yellow heirloom tomato bloody mary that is simple, crisp and refreshing! As much as I love the Ol’ Yellow Bloody Mary, it comes with a $15 price tag, so it’s not exactly wallet friendly to enjoy frequently.
Craving this yellow heirloom tomato bloody mary, I wanted to recreate one of my favorite bloody mary recipes at home, so I can enjoy it whenever and you can too! I don’t know the actual recipe the restaurant uses, so it simply served as inspiration for my recipe. I created the heirloom tomato bloody mary recipe with minimal and fresh ingredients, so the brightness and earthy sweetness of the heirloom tomatoes shine through.
To compliment the exceptional flavor of the heirloom tomato bloody mary recipe I needed a quality vodka that would seamlessly blend with the mix for a smooth finish. PAU Maui Vodka, a platinum medal and consumer’s choice winning vodka at the 2019 SIP Awards was the perfect choice for this heirloom tomato bloody mary recipe. “Infinitely smooth and endlessly versatile,” I knew PAU Maui Vodka wouldn't compromise the integrity of these delicate and fresh heirloom bloody marys.
Masterfully handcrafted (like this cocktail) from up-country in Maui and distilled from pineapples, you can order PAU Maui Vodka online HERE or pick a bottle up at some of your favorite stores such as Target, Vons, Whole Foods, and BevMo!.
