healthified bloody mary with two spooky twists

healthified bloody maryFirst off: Sorry this post is late today. I couldn’t figure out the name of this particular spice, and didn’t want to give you guys the wrong name. Plus, my internet was moving at 90s dialup speed. #bloggerproblems

See these Bloody Marys? I love em. Seriously. Alcohol can be iffy for me sometimes, but I can NEVER pass up a Bloody Mary. And aren’t they so choice for Halloween (don’t mind me…just trying to bring back Ferris Bueller).

Any who, I bought a Bloody Mary mix awhile ago…but that mix had a bunch of crap in it, so I decided to clean it up a bit. I used a basic recipe–using clean ingredients–and went from there. Though, there are hundreds of different Bloody Mary recipes online, if you wanted something with a slightly different vibe.

The main stunners on these drinks are the “cocktail sticks,” which I (of course) decorated in a Halloween fashion. I told you – I love a good theme!

First, I poured the Bloody Mary ingredients (see below) into a skeleton glass (Michaels, of course). I mean, it can only get better from there.

Then, I gave my first drink a set of eyes.

Poke the skewer through the caprese ball, and place the olive on top of the caprese ball, securing it with a clove. Of course, make two, unless you’re going for the scary, one-eyed bloody monster look. Which is also totally okay.

Now, beware: if the cheese “pumpkins” are not thick enough, the skewer will pierce them and crack the cheese in half. It’s a fine balance.

Skewer the pumpkins in the middle (where a pumpkin stem might go) and garnish by poking a very tiny hole in the top, with a skewer, and sticking a small thyme leaf in it. Tuh-duh!
