Yellow Tomato Bloody Mary Recipe with Fresh Tomatoes - Texas Hill Country Olive Co.

We love a classic Bloody Mary for a brunch or breakfast beverage on a special occasion. And sure, you can find a good Bloody Mary mix at the grocery store, but those often have artificial preservatives, so making your own at home using fresh ingredients is highly preferred.

But have you ever considered making your Bloody Mary using yellow tomatoes instead of red? It makes the most beautiful and vibrant yellow cocktail packed with fresh tomato flavor.

And we must say, our recipe is the absolute best. The unique combination of Harissa Infused Olive Oil (or Jalapeño Infused) and Persian Lime Balsamic Vinegar provides a refreshing twist on the classic cocktail, and delivers a bold and exciting flavor experience.

It's the perfect cocktail to whip out during an event to show off your cocktail creativity, and your guests will rave about it for months, maybe even years to come!

Yellow Tomato Bloody Mary Recipe with Fresh Tomatoes


Bloody Mary Ingredients:

  • 4 cups fresh yellow tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon  Persian Lime Balsamic Vinegar (or lime juice)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon  Harissa Infused Olive Oil or  Jalapeño Infused Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup or 2 oz vodka (our favorite vodka is from Dripping Springs Distilling)
  • Ice cubes

Optional Spicy Ingredients:

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Additional hot sauce, like a dash of Tabasco (adjust to taste)
  • Tajin or spicy salt for rim


  • Celery stalk
  • Grilled crab or shrimp

  1. Prepare the Yellow Tomato Base: In a blender, combine the chopped yellow tomatoes. Blend until smooth.

  2. Strain the Mixture: Pour the blended yellow tomato purée through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a large pitcher to remove the pulp and seeds. Use a spatula to press down and extract as much juice as possible. Discard the solids.

  3. Mix the Ingredients: To the strained yellow tomato juice, add lemon juice, Persian lime balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, horseradish, celery salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and sugar. Stir well to combine.

  4. Add the Harissa Infused Olive Oil and Vodka: Pour in the harissa infused olive oil and vodka, mixing thoroughly.

  5. Optional Spicy Addition: For extra spiciness, add cayenne pepper and additional hot sauce. Mix well.

  6. Chill the Mixture: Refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together.

  7. Serve the Bloody Mary: If you're rimming the glass, rub lime around the top and roll the top of the glass in your salt mixture. Fill glasses with ice cubes. Pour the Yellow Tomato Bloody Mary mixture over the ice.

  8. Garnish: Garnish each glass with your garnishes of choice.

  9. Enjoy: Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing Yellow Tomato Bloody Mary with a unique twist!

Time to Enjoy!

We know a Bloody Mary made with regular tomatoes is tried and true, but why not give this exciting recipe a try?!

Yellow tomatoes are available year-round; however, their peak season is summer, so we highly recommend whipping up a batch of these drinks in the hotter months.

We only use the highest quality ingredients in our cocktails—and you should too!
