This Bloody Mary article of course starts with a cheers or santé, because it’s about one of the most common cocktails ever. The Bloody Mary is a classic long drink, basically mixed from vodka or gin with tomato juice. To top it off, the classic Bloody Mary is flavored with celery salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce. Since I’m a total fan for simple drinks, as the Bloody Mary certainly is, this cocktail naturally belongs in my recipe portfolio. All I need for a good long drink is maybe some gin, vodka or rum along with one or two other ingredients, just like cooking, clean and simple.
What´s obviously different from a classic Bloody Mary, is the color and with this change, the taste is rather pure and even a bit more delicate. Just like white tomato soup, for the white Bloody Mary tomato is pureed and then put into a cloth. This way, only the pure tomato juice drips through the cloth and the red color parts from the tomato pulp stay in the cloth. Otherwise, my recipe for white Bloody Mary is refined with some apple juice and of course stirred with a good vodka.
So, what you see here is certainly not a drink just for Bloody Mary lovers. It’s for those of you who may want to come up with a drink that everyone knows, but may not have experienced like this before. The funny thing is, that when you drink the white Bloody Mary, you wouldn’t necessarily connect with tomato, because your eyes don’t see any red color. It’s like eating in the dark or with your eyes closed. What your eyes don’t see might not be there, or might it?
