Grilling expert Carlye White shared several recipes for your Memorial Day cookout, including a grilled Bloody Mary!
Grilled Bloody Mary
2 pounds Large red tomatoes, halved
2 lemons, halved
3 small-to-medium celery stalks, preferably with leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons Dale’s Seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated horseradish
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more, for seasoning
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more, for seasoning
½ cup beef bouillon
8 ounces (1 cup) vodka
Tabasco sauce or hot sauce, for serving
- Light a grill and set it up for direct heat or preheat a grill pan. Brush the grill grates with oil and arrange the tomatoes and lemons cut side down and grill over high heat until well browned on the bottoms, 4 to 5 minutes. Grill the celery stalks, turning occasionally, until the leaves are singed, about 2 minutes and set aside for garnish.
Transfer the tomatoes to a food processor and let cool slightly. Squeeze 3 tablespoons of juice from the lemons and add it to the food processor; reserve the lemons. Add the Dale’s Sauce, horseradish, sugar, 1 ½ teaspoons of salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper to the processor and process until as smooth as possible.
Strain the Bloody Mary mix through a fine sieve into a liquid measuring cup, pressing on the solids; you should have at least 2 cups of mix. Season the mix with more lemon juice, salt and pepper, if desired.
For each drink: In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine ½ cup Bloody Mary mix with 2 ounces of vodka; close and shake well. Pour the Bloody Mary into a tall ice-filled, garnish with a singed celery stalk and serve with Tabasco or Hot Sauce, for seasoning. Fill the cocktail shaker with clean ice before making each drink..
