How To Make Bloody Mary Popsicles

What Are Bloody Mary Popsicles?

I have to admit, the answer to this question is an easy one. We start with a spicy and flavorful homemade tomato based mix, frozen into ice pops then melted into a glass filled with ice and vodka. Simple, easy to make and fit for a colorful and beautiful presentation to your family, guests and friends.

All credit for this popsicle recipe goes to my daughter Brittany. Britt is all things culinary having recieved her degree in Culinary Arts/Restaurant Management years ago. When we were brainstorming some new recipes for my blog she suggested some fun, flavored popsicles. I honestly had no idea what she was talking about but thankfully she schooled me fairly quickly as to what options I could make.

We brainstormed some more and then we came up with the Bloody Mary popsicle. The recipe has limited ingredients and is simple to make. Of course, trying to find ingredients that are low carb yet flavorful is tricky. Fortunately, for these pops I managed to keep the carb count to approximately 2.6 grams per pop. Very doable in Ketoworld.

What Ingredients Are In Bloody Mary Popsicles?

Making these popsicles is really easy and they can be put together in less than five minutes. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be adjusted according to personal taste. I personally like a Bloody Mary with a little kick in the spice area, whereas Mr. Fussy prefers no spices at all (he’s such a lightweight!).

The tomato juice is the base of the mix and there are many on the market to choose from. I would have preferred a nice organic juice but was unable to find one where I live so I found one with a low carb count at my local supermarket. The rest of the ingredients for these pops I had in my pantry and refrigerator so throwing this together took no time at all.

I had to calculate how much tomato juice I needed for 8 popsicle molds, then once I came up with that number the rest was a breeze. Horseradish is the one ingredient you can really play around with. If you don’t like a lot of spice keep the horseradish minimal, roughly 1-2 teaspoons for the pitcher of juice. If you want a little more kick like I do, then add 3-4 teaspoons of Horseradish. Along with the Horseradish the remaining ingredients are Worcestershire Sauce, Granulated Garlic, Tobasco Sauce and fresh Lemon Juice.

Now, you might think adding lemon juice is too much for the Bloody Mary mix. Not true-lemon will brighten up the drink and in some cases cut the acidity of the tomato juice. If you are not a fan of lemon juice add it sparingly and taste as you go.

How To Serve These Bloody Mary Popsicles

Remember, this recipe is for using in popsicle molds, but the overall base of the recipe, the Bloody Mary mix, can be used in a basic beverage or highball glass with the vodka added to the mix or glass. Since Vodka doesn’t freeze unless in an extremely cold freezer, I decided to just pour the Vodka into the glass I would be serving the pop in. The presentation is really very pretty if you put the ice and the Vodka in a glass then place the ice pop into the glass and let it melt.

I served these just a few weeks ago when we had our neighbors over for brunch. Since we live in a warm climate, we all really enjoyed sitting outside waiting for the pops to melt while we munched on Pickled Shrimp, slices of Cheesy Bread and the occassional olive on a skewer. Which brings me to the garnishes for these Bloody Mary Popsicles. Basically, anything goes. As you can tell by my picture we had celery in the mason jar and shrimp and olives on the side. Whatever you like in a Bloody Mary can be added to this recipe.

These pops are fun to make and even more fun to eat. They mix up quickly and take only six hours in total to freeze. Of course, you do have to wait a bit for them to melt however, if you don’t want to wait for that to happen just pour the mix over a big glass of vodka and ice. Either way, I suggest you give these pops a try. You won’t be disappointed!
