Did you know that January 1 is National Bloody Mary Day? That’s right, New Year’s Day is also the day we celebrate one of the most iconic drinks out there, the Bloody Mary! And Ketel One Vodka wants to make sure that we know this foodie holiday with a very special recipe.

When it comes to cocktails, the Bloody Mary might just be one of the few drinks that requires more than like two or three ingredients that we know how to make. And even when it comes to jazzing things up, it tends to be relatively easy to just make it spicy or garnish it with something different that takes this beverage to the next level.

But thanks to Ketel One Vodka, we have now learned a whole new way to make a Bloody Mary. And since this cocktail takes the traditional red and turns it green, we are loving every bit of this recipe. Of course, the fact that we can always turn to their Ketel One Citroen to make our sipping next level is also important when it comes to getting our bar carts ready for National Bloody Mary Day.

So what exactly is the Green Mary and how do we make this drink happen for our next brunch?

How to make a Green Mary with the help of Ketel One Vodka

What you need:

  • 1 Ounce of Ketel One Vodka (we can’t wait to try this with the Ketel One Citreon too)
  • 3.5 Ounces of fresh juiced celery
  • 3.5 Ounces of fresh juiced cucumber
  • 0.5 Ounce of fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 pinch each of “rock salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried chili flakes”
  • A slice of cucumber salted (This is the garnish)

What to do:

In a glass, add all of your ingredients, except the garnish, and stir it all together well. Add in ice (we recommend an oversized ice cube). Garnish with your sliced cucumber. The final step is to enjoy!

This is truly an easy cocktail recipe and one that we love as an alternative to a classic Bloody Mary. But what do you think? Will you give the Green Mary from Ketel One a try?
