The Butternut Squash and Bacon Bloody Mary.

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.
