Caprese Bloody Mary

Welcome back! So tonight I have a recipe for those followers who are 21 and older. This is an unconventional bloody mary I thought of and just had to try. After making it tonight I feel that is is worthy of sharing with the public. So go ahead give it a try, if you tweak it let me know what you did so I can try it as well! Lets get started.

So as shown in the picture you are going to need your regular vodka (what ever brand you like), Bloody Mary Mixer, grape tomatoes, mozzarella balls, artichoke hearts, pesto, basil, and a little balsamic vinegar. Because these are pretty rich and savory I don't recommend mixing up GIANT drink sizes. I used a couple 6 oz jars for mine, but you are welcome to use what ever you like obviously.

Fill the cup 3/4 full of Bloody Mary mix
2 or 3 table spoons of pesto
1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar
1 shot of vodka

Then for embellishments put 2 quartered artichoke hearts into the mix, then half a grade tomato, half a mozzarella cheese ball and a folded up basil leaf into a tooth pick to set on the side. At the end I put a little fresh cracked pepper on top and a couple pieces of ripped basil then drink!

It is pretty tasty, give it a go!
