Al Fresca Mary Recipe


Like a Tuscan sunrise over the region’s renowned vineyards, our Al Fresca Mary is brimming with warmth – and many of the subtle flavor notes you might find in a superior Chianti – thanks to tomato juice infused with fresh strawberry and lightly spicy pepperoncini and a generous pour of rich balsamic syrup.


  • 1 1/2 Ounce Peppered vodka
  • 3 Ounces Strawberry/Tomato juice
  • 1/2 Ounce Balsamic Syrup
  • pepperoncini and strawberry

  • 1 Cup balsamic vinegar


Method: In a mixing glass, build first three ingredients.  Shake and pour into a wine glass.  Garnish with a pepperoncini and strawberry.

Method: Blanch and peel 4 oz. fresh tomatoes.  Add 4 oz. fresh strawberries, 4 pepperoncini's, and 1 oz. water.  Blend together until pureed.
