Green Bloody Mary AKA a SLIMY MARY for HALLOWEEN Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

When it comes to Halloween recipes, I want my food looking CREEPY AF - and still tasting scary good.

That's where this tentacle-y, slimy green cocktail comes in. A twist on the traditionally red colored Bloody Mary; this drink is made with a similar taste profile in mind.

The biggest difference being the tentacles, of course.

One might say this drink is scared STIFF

After the year(s) we've all had lately, we could definitely use a strong drink to erase our memories.

  • tomatillos - instead of RED tomatoes, use GREEN tomatillos instead
  • tequilla - to make the drink scary strong
  • English cucumber - a blended base for the drink to build on flavors
  • jalapenos - some Bloody Mary's are spicy, so feel free to crank up the HEAT for Halloween
  • sea salt - for the rim (I forgot this in the pics! Oops!)
