Bloody Screwdrivers

I’ll admit it.  I have this secret obsession with Martha Stewart.  I don’t even care that she went to jail 10 years ago.  I still love her.  As a child, I never dreamed of my “fairytale wedding,” but if I did, Martha Stewart would have planned it all.  So, as I was aimlessly clicking all over her website earlier today, I discovered a recipe for Bloody (Orange) Marys.  I decided to use her recipe as a loose guide to make my own version, so here it is!



 And then I drank it.  And it was nom.  Because why not day drink in the middle of a gorgeous afternoon off?

 Here’s how I made mine:

 Just as a warning, I almost never measure anything when I make food or beverages…so use your best judgment when trying to figure out how much I added.

 I also don’t like spicy/hot stuff, so I don’t own any Tabasco sauce…sorry about it.  It’s just not in there.

Annnnnd, I also don’t add pepper either unless I deem it completely necessary.  But right now, I would rather not taste pepper.  You can go ahead and judge me now.


And, as you’ve already seen, I’m calling these:

Bloody Screwdrivers


A dash of horseradish

A dash of salt (literally, the smallest amount I could possibly add, without saying I just didn’t add any)

About 3 tablespoons of lemon juice

6 oz. of tomato juice

3 oz. of orange juice

1 oz. Absolut vodka

1 very large ice cube


Mix with a swizzle stick.

Garnish with a celery stick and lemon slice.


Have an awesome rest of the day!
