Bloody Mary with Spiralized Pickles

There’s something extremely comforting about lazily waking up on a weekend, heading to a local brunch spot and starting the day off with a spicy, horseradish-y Bloody Mary.

Whether you’re planning on a Sunday Funday, hosting friends for brunch, recovering from the night before, or just want a cocktail to accompany your spiralized frittata, I have an easy and fun Bloody Mary recipe for you today that uses spiralized pickles as a garnish/ingredient!

Bloody Mary with Spiralized Pickles

Not only are these spiralized pickles an impressive garnish, they add a tangy kick that complements the spiciness of this famous morning cocktail.

The spiralized pickles become infused with the horseradishy tomato sauce and are an extra treat while you’re drinking the Bloody.

Not only is this cocktail a vision, it’s also delicious, thanks to the high-quality marinara sauce used from Victoria Fine Foods. By using this healthy marinara sauce, you’ll enjoy not only the flavors from the horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, pickles, and vodka, but your ingredients will pop with this sauce.

You’ll want to use the celery to dip in the Bloody, this cocktail’s so flavored packed!

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to use some of the fun cocktail tools that we received as wedding gifts. We’re such wine people, we rarely make cocktails – but from what I’ve learned after concocting this Bloody Mary is that making cocktails is an art – much similar to baking. The right combination of flavors and ratios of alcohol to mixers can yield some pretty incredible flavors!

I can’t wait to see all of your spiralized pickles on Bloody Marys this summer!

I moved to England and the food I truly miss the most is the Victoria marinara sauce sold at Costco. I seriously need to beg UK Costco to start importing it! Can wait to try this recipe.
Tracy Brown says:
Speaking of which, how many cups of marinara sauce?

whenever I hit a breakfast rut, I always make potato hashes. 🥔🍳 they're easy to make, keep you full until lunch, and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand: potatoes, garlic, a can of beans, eggs, and some sort of vegetable (here, I used brussels sprouts - but you could use bell peppers, finely chopped broccoli, etc!) what do you make when you're in a breakfast rut? 🤔⁣

serves 3-4⁣

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil⁣
1 russet potato, small cubed⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 large garlic clove, minced⁣
12 ounces shredded Brussels sprouts⁣
1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1/8 teaspoon chili powder⁣
vegetable broth, as needed (or water, if you don’t have broth on hand)⁣
4 eggs for frying (if desired)⁣

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and let cook until almost fork tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, Brussels sprouts and white beans, stir together, and season with smoked paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until sprouts are browned and potatoes are completely fork tender, about 10 more minutes, adding vegetable broth by the tablespoon as the vegetables dry out and potentially stick to the bottom of the pan.⁣

Meanwhile, fry four eggs in a large skillet or in batches. Divide the hash onto plates and top with the fried eggs. Serve with extra cracked pepper.⁣
