The Best Homemade Tomatillo Bloody Marys


If you love tomatillos as much as we do, you have to try this recipe for Tomatillo Bloody Marys! It’s as good as it sounds, a meal in a glass!

Tomatillos are native to Mexico and have been adopted by US farmers. They’re a small green fruit with a paper husk around the outside. They’re similar to an unripe tomato and have a little more acidity to them. They can be used in a variety of ways. One of my favorite soup recipes for easy posole from Gwyneth Paltrow’s book, It’s All Good, uses tomatillos and it’s the first time I was introduced to them! I’ve been hooked ever since. They go so well with lime and cilantro too.

How to make Tomatillo Bloody Marys

Follow our recipe for homemade tomatillo Bloody Mary mix and then add 4 ounces of mix to 1.5 ounces of gin or vodka. Add in the juice of 1/2 fresh-squeezed lime, and salt and pepper to taste. This mix is really meant for our build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. It’s a simple mix that you can then add ingredients to, like hot sauce, citrus, olives, dill or salt and pepper… whatever you prefer.
