Turmeric Bloody Mary

Sommer Pyne

This week for Cocktail Hour we have the lovely Erica from @naturallynourishedlondon who has created a delicious Bloody Mary with a little healthy twist. Head over to IGTV to meet Erica and see our cocktail demonstration. Over to you Erica….

Who loves a Bloody Mary with brunch? I do! This cocktail is a little twist on the classic Bloody Mary! I’ve opted for gin in place of vodka and added an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant hit with a touch of turmeric. The fresh horseradish gives it an extra kick and being part of the cruciferous family it’ll help your liver along with detoxification!

Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, another potent antioxidant and anti-aging nutrient. Cocktails that also hold some nutritional value…. I’m in! Enjoy!

Prep time: 10 minutes    make time: 5 minutes    serves: 2


600ml tomato juice

2 double measures of gin

1 Tbsp fresh horseradish ~ grated

1 lemon ~ halved (half for juice and half for garnish)

2 sticks of celery

1 Tsp of ground turmeric

8 dashes of Worcester sauce

10 dashes of tobasco (or more if you prefer it a little more spicy!)

1. Squeeze the juice from half the lemon and add to a high-speed blender along with all the other ingredients and half the ice. Blend until the ice has broken down.
