Virgin Cocktail Week:: Homemade Virgin Bloody Mary (aka V8!)


By now you should be adapting to your clean eating regime. I hope you’re working out, too. Even a brisk walk for 20 minutes 3 times a week should be fine. Just get up and MOVE!

One of the hardest parts of clean eating is avoiding alcohol. As you all know, I love cocktails – so much so that I wrote an entire book about them! But I try to make an effort each January to clean up my entire routine and that includes cocktails!

A go-to cocktail that I love is a Bloody Mary. Instead of indulging in a traditional cocktail, I like to mix-up homemade V8 juice. I even place a celery stick into the glass, too. It makes it feel that much more authentic. Sometimes making your juice more festive makes juicing more fun!
