Virgin Bell Peppered Mary
10 mins (prep 10)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
A cousin to the Virgin Mary, this has red bell peppers. Add a pinch of cayenne for a kick. Awesome with Sunday brunch! Get healthy! Adapted from The Balanced Plate by Renee Loux. Enjoy!The debate rages on about the Bloody Mary's origin. Many credit a bartender at Harry's New York Bar -- which ironically was in Paris -- with the drink's creation in the 1920s. However, bars from New York to Chicago to West Palm Beach lay some sort of claim. Most say the drink was named after Queen Mary I, who was called "Bloody Mary" in the 1500s due to her penchant for burning Protestants at the stake; others claim it was named after a girl named Mary who tried the drink and spilled some on her dress. Perhaps nobody wanted to settle the debate because it could have been -- you knew this was coming -- bloody.Update: After reading a review, I have made a few additions to the recipe.
