Drunken Tomato/Bloody Mary

"These tomatoes are really good as an appetizer, but I wasn't sure what to do with the vodka once all of the vegetables were gone. You can really use it in any Bloody Mary recipe, but this is my dad's and although I've always had it sans alcohol, the flavored vodka gives it a nice garlicky fresh taste! P.S. These Bloody Marys are HOT!"

Ready In:
2hrs 5mins
3-5 jars, one bloody mary




  • In the bottom of each container place 1-2 cloves of garlic and a sprig of cilantro along with 5-6 olives and some slices of pepper.
  • With a bamboo skewer or knife poke holes in the end of the tomatoes and pack as many into the container as possible leaving a 1/2 inch breathing room on the top of the containers.
  • Just cover the tomato mixture with vodka and let stand in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • BLOODY MARY - makes one glass: 6-12 shakes of Tabasco (I like it hot), 6-12 shakes hot sauce, 2 teaspoons pickle juice, 2 teaspoons pepper juice, 4-5 shakes Worcestershire sauce, dill, celery salt, salt and pepper to taste. Fill glass with V-8 and enjoy!

  1. These are quick and easy to prepare, but I did make one small change- I added some Worcestershire sauce into the vodka “marinade.” Served with a little salt and lemon juice, these are terrific. Don’t let them soak too long though or you will have to whir a few of them in the blender and add other ingredients to make your Bloody Mary! Thanks for the quick, simple, and tasty addition to my collection.


I love recipezaar! I'm not really an active member as far as the boards or anything, but I really enjoy reading through all of the recipes some nights and trying to come up with different ways to feed my picky husband. I usually have the best luck with cookies :) We just had a baby in 2008 and he's the sweetest guy ever - picture Charlie Brown. That's my guy!
