Low Carb Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe


If you're looking for a good 'scary' kind of drink for Halloween, the Bloody Mary would fit the bill nicely! It's tasty at other times of year as well, if you like a drink with a kick.

This cocktail is in essence spicy tomato juice and vodka.

Ingredients:
3oz tomato juice
1.5oz vodka
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 drops Tabasco sauce
1 dash lemon juice

Shake all ingredients together with ice, and strain into a tall glass with ice cubes. Some people add salt and pepper.

I personally find this drink VERY salty - too salty to drink in fact. However, my mom loves these, so it is definitely a matter of each person having their own personal taste.

There is tomato juice with salt, and tomato juice without salt, so if you're on a low salt diet, you can go with the lower salt version.

Tomato juice has about 1.3g carbs per ounce, so for 3oz you are getting 3.9g of carbs. Call it an even 4 since people rarely measure out shots exactly. A bit more than wine per drink, but less than most beer.

If you're doing this for Halloween, get a plastic eyeball or two, and put them into your drink like ice cubes!

Who Was Bloody Mary
Bloody Mary was the nickname of Queen Mary I of England. She was only queen from 1553 to 1558. Her dad was Henry VIII and once she took control she actively tried to get the Roman Catholic church in control of England. Along the way she burned at least 300 of her enemies at the stake. She even killed the archibishop of Canterbury.

Desperate for a child to perpetuate her line, she married an enemy of the state, Philip II of Spain. This made her population even more upset with her. Her husband abandoned her, and she died only 5 years after she took control. With her death came in her sister, Elizabeth, one of the most famous monarchs in history!

Unfortunately, Bloody Mary never got to try this drink. It was invented in the 1920s in Paris, France, at the New York Bar. Fernand Petiot was the bartender who brought this cocktail to life.
