Erica loves a nice caprese salad. She also loves a good bloody Mary. Last weekend she surprised me with a new creation, the caprese bloody Mary. [kuh-prey-zey, ‐zee] It’s a great tasting light summer drink that looks stunning.
I put her to work, documenting her steps and writing this recipe for our readers. Enjoy!
1/2 ounce Basil infused vodka
1/2 ounce Garlic-Celery infused vodka
1/2 ounce vodka
2 tsp Worcestershire
½ tsp cracked pepper
¼ tsp cayenne powder
Juice of one lemon wedge
8 oz tomato juice
Rim a pint glass with grated Parmesan cheese.
Put all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake and pour all contents into the glass.
Garnish with a skewer of alternating cherry tomatoes, basil leaf, and mozzarella balls.
For additional fun, dip the garnishes in homemade pesto. Yum!
