Gotham Mary Recipe


Starting with New York, we wanted to take the flavors of the iconic breakfast Manhattan bagel and elevate the ingredients of a Bloody Mary to be classy and sophisticated in this cosmopolitan city.  


  • 2 Ounces Prohibition Distillery Bootlegger 21 or another New York vodka
  • 1 Ounce spiced tomato water
  • 3 dashes The Bitter Truth celery bitters
  • Poppy and Sesame Seeds, mixed


In a mixing glass, add vodka, spiced tomato water, and bitters.  Add ice to mixing glass and stir until chilled.  Garnish ½ of martini glass with a mixture of Poppy and Sesame seeds.  Strain cocktail into Martini glass and serve.   

Spiced Tomato Water - Core and quarter 4lbs. ripe red tomatoes.  Toss tomatoes with kosher salt.  Process the tomatoes, 1 small white onion (chopped), and 4 garlic cloves in a food processor to create a rough puree.  Wrap a large strainer in cheesecloth and add tomato puree.  Refrigerated, let mixture strain.  This is a slow process and may take up to 24 hours.
