Easter Bunny Mary

This adults-only Easter cocktail is a slightly sweet and spicy Bloody Mary made with carrot juice instead of tomato juice.

Ingredients

Spice Mix:

1
teaspoon black pepper
1
teaspoon chili powder
1/2
teaspoon celery salt
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder

Bunny Mary Mix:

2
cups carrot juice
2
tablespoons pickle juice
1
tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1
tablespoon hot sauce
1/2
lemon, juice only
2
teaspoons spice mix
8
oz vodka (divided, add separately)

Garnishes to skewer and serve with drinks:

Pickles, chopped
Baby carrots, whole
Celery, chopped
Kalamata olives, whole

Directions

  • 1 Whisk together the Spice Mix ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Taste the mix and feel free to adjust it to your liking. You can make it spicier by adding more hot sauce or just stronger in general if you like. You’ll use some in the Bunny Mary Mix, but you can also rim the glasses with the spice mix, so feel free to make a double batch!
  • 2 Combine Bunny Mary Mix ingredients.
  • 3 To make a single cocktail, rim a tall glass with a lemon wedge and sprinkle it with some of the spice mix. Then add in ice and 2 ounces of vodka. Fill glass with the Bunny Mary mix (about 4 ounces per drink). Garnish each drink with skewered olives, pickles, etc.

Step By Step  

This adults-only Bloody Mary is made Easter-perfect with carrot juice instead of tomato juice.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

A drink perfect for "frunching" – having brunch with your friends!

I generally don’t like to mess with my boozy brunch drinks: It’s a Bloody Mary or it’s a mimosa. Let’s not make this more complicated than it needs to be, right?

I tend to prefer the Bloody Mary, but there’s one thing that has bothered me about the drink: I don’t really love tomato juice. I love all the spices and add-ins in a Bloody Mary, but the tomato juice base isn’t my favorite.

I’ve played with other juices over the years. I’ve tried beet juice with some success, but I think this is (finally) the answer to those that like the idea of a bloody Mary but don’t like tomato juice: carrot juice.

Carrot juice, you see, is slightly sweet but still flavorful enough to hold up to the spices and add-ins that are a must for a good brunch drink.

 

Easter Bunny Mary

To start, I made up a little homemade spice mix with kosher salt, black pepper, chili powder, celery salt and garlic powder.

I used this to not only season the Bunny Mary mix, but also to rim the glasses later.

The mix is just 100% carrot juice plus some pickle juice and lemon juice (for acidity), Worcestershire sauce (for savory), and hot sauce (for spicy). Plus, add about two teaspoons of the spice mix. You can add more to taste, but that’s a good base amount.

For me, any good Bloody Mary or bunny Mary will have loads of good toppings. For this version, it just made sense to use a little baby carrot plus some celery, pickle, and olives. I like to make little skewers of all the garnishes that can be dipped in the drinks.

 

Easter Bunny Mary

To make each drink, run a lemon wedge around the edge of each glass and dust it with some of the spice mix, then fill it with a lot of ice and about two ounces of vodka. 

Pour in that carrot mix!

Garnish each drink with a garnish skewer.

Then drink up! I love the color of this and it’s really tasty.
