Butternut Squash and Bacon Bloody Mary

Ingredients

  • 2/3 Cups  butternut squash puree
  • 1/3 Cup  vegetable stock
  • 2 Tablespoons  freshly grated horseradish
  •   dash of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon  freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Ounce  vodka or bacon-infused vodka
  •    chopped bacon, to garnish
  •    lime wedge, to garnish

Why stick with tomatoes, when you can have your squash and bacon, too? The Bloody Mary is served at New York City's Hospoda restaurant. 

Directions

Create a pre-mix of vegetable stock (about 1/3 cup) and Butternut squashpuree (about 2/3 cup), boiled together and then cooled. Mix until it attains the consistency of V8. Mix in freshly grated horseradish to taste, a dash of salt, and fresh ground pepper. Add vodka and serve over rocks, garnishing with extra crispy house-smoked bacon and a wedge of lime to add that missing acidity.
