Bunny Mary

The following recipe and photography were provided by our partner, Kayla Breeden Falconer of Kayla’s Kitch and Fix.

In the world of morning cocktails, Bloody Mary’s are an unrivaled fan-favorite. Well, mimosas may give it some competition, but comparing these sweet and savory sips is like comparing apples to oranges, or, in this case, tomatoes to carrots!

To me, a Bloody Mary is the perfect way to kick off any day of celebration! With just the right amount of buzz to wake you up, the savory tomato flavor is perfectly complimented by the tang and heat of olive brine, hot sauce and Worcestershire.

Bunny Mary

I’m all about finding ways to breathe new life into beloved recipes, so in the spirt of spring, and Easter if you celebrate, I swapped the tomato juice that gives this drink it’s “bloody” namesake for carrot juice! The result is a deliciously orange “Bunny Mary” that will have everyone hopping to the bar for another round!

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
