Developed as part of the UV Vodka Challenge.
Greg was given four UV Vodka flavors and tasked with creating a unique bloody Mary recipe for each
Of all the UV Vodka flavors I was challenged with, I knew the UV Blue Raspberry was going to be the most challenging. This is not a flavor one normally thinks of when crafting a bloody Mary.
I could try to shoehorn this tasty berry flavor into a conventional bloody Mary. Maybe with enough spice I could “bury the berry.” Nope, instead I decided to celebrate the berry. I went to work creating a light refreshing cocktail suitable for a day out sailing. I balanced the savory properties of Sacramento tomato juice with the fresh bold flavors of grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime and added a dash of green tea. It was fabulous….
- 3 Ounces Sacramento Tomato Juice
2 Ounces UV Blue Raspberry Vodka
Splash of Green Tea
1/4 wedge each; Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, and Lime
6 to 10 Fresh Raspberries
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
- In a stout pint glass, muddle the raspberries
Squeeze in Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, and Lime
Add cayenne pepper to taste
Add tomato juice and UV Blue vodka
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in mixture
Pour back into pint glass and float green tea over top and serve.
