Spice Up Your Sunday Brunch With This Tomatillo Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe

I’ve been obsessed with all things verde lately, ever since returning from my trip to Baja California, be it salsa verde or Aguachile Verde. So, naturally, when I created a twist on a Bloody Mary for my fellow Californians at Hangar 1 Vodka, I went verde and made this Tomatillo Bloody Mary Cocktail.

Healthy Chopped Salad with Buttermilk-Peppercorn Dressing Recipe

I like the Tropical Ginger Smoothie so much that I decided to make my own version here!
