Refreshing and flavorful, these green bloody marys are made with tomatillos, yellow cherry tomatoes, tart green apple, jalapeño and fresh herbs.


  • 1 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, halved  
  • 3 tomatillos, chopped (1½ cups)
  • ½ green apple, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, stemmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 sprig each parsley and cilantro
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and Worcestershire
  • ½ teaspoon green hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon celery seed
  • 4 ounces vodka, divided

To serve:

  • Garnish with lime wedges, yellow cherry tomatoes, apple slices, herbs 
  • Horseradish
  • Hot sauce
  • Salt


Add all ingredients, except vodka, to a blender and blend until smooth, scraping down sides of blender as needed.

Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve; * discard solids.

Fill two collins glasses with ice and pour 2 ounces vodka into each glass. Divide tomato mixture between glasses and stir to combine. Season with additional lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire, hot sauce and salt to desired taste.


Recipe notes:

* I don’t like chunks in my bloody marys, but if you do, only strain half or three-quarters of the mixture.

Equipment you’ll need:

Blender (a high-powered blender works best for this recipe)

Make is vegan:

Leave Worcestershire out or use liquid aminos in its place
