Celebrate America’s 234th birthday this July with an organic and vegan Bloody Mary! What better way to start your Sunday 4th of July, than with a pure-tasting dose of American-made organic vodka coupled with rich organic tomato juice? Despite most Blood Mary recipes, our recipe with vegan Worcestershire sauce truly hits the spot whether you are drinking it at brunch or while watching the fireworks in the evening.  And, of course, our Bloody Mary tastes best when consumed responsibly. We suggest two different brands of organic vodka, Crop Vodka and Square One Vodka. Produced with grains grown in the U.S., Crop Vodka is USDA certified for its organic ingredients . Even better, Crop distills in a manner in which carbon treatment and charcoal filtering is not used. They even offer a tomato infused organic vodka to give your Bloody Mary an extra tomato kick!  Square One uses rye grown in North Dakota that is organically certified. The company also developed its bottle, so it could be used as a vase or container after it is empty! All you have to do is peel off the paper label, which is made of sustainably grown and renewable fiber sources. Cheers to an even more responsible way of drinking!
