Low-Calorie Green Goddess Bloody Mary

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Welcome to our Whole Life Challenge-compliant cocktail series from professional bartender Jenna Gruttadauria. Jenna practiced mixology at some of the most well-known bars and clubs in New York City before joining the Whole Life Challenge team. Now, she enjoys using her knowledge to make healthier versions of classic cocktails.

The bloody Mary is the go-to cocktail for most brunch-goers, and while this cocktail is truly delicious (and surprisingly Whole Life Challenge compliant), it’s still nice to shake things up a bit.

I decided to “go green” with my twist on the classically red cocktail. With a green heirloom tomato base, some basil for spice, and pineapple for sweetness, this delicious concoction will prove to be unlike any bloody you’ve brunched before.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 green tomatoes
  • 1/3 of a pineapple
  • 15 basil leaves
  • 1/2 of a fresh jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 teaspoon celery salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. Blend tomatoes, pineapple, basil, and jalapeno in a blender, slowly adding each ingredient to not overwhelm your machine.
  2. Once blended, pour the mixture through a mesh strainer into a large bowl.
  3. Add cayenne, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, and black pepper. (Keep in mind that, really, all of these ingredients can be “to taste.” Add as much or as little as you like.)
  4. In a glass, add vodka and ice, then fill with your green Mary mixture.
  5. To further mix your drink, roll it into another glass and then back into the first.

Recipe Notes

Dressing up your Mary is half the fun. I like to garnish this version with a basil sprig and a slice of pineapple or jalapeno.

Note: We are not saying that alcohol is “healthy” to consume. (More on that here.) We are acknowledging that there are times we inevitably make the choice to imbibe (and we include ourselves in that “we”), and that there are better and worse ways to go about drinking alcohol when it comes to our health. Our goal is to empower you with lower-sugar, lower-calorie, still-fabulous recipes for these times.
