Recipe For Asian Bloody Mary Using Shochu, Sake, or Soju

A Lighter Bloody Mary

Bloody Marys are the quintessential brunch time drink; some might even argue that it's liquid salad. My feeling is that as long as you don't overdo it, they're a fun way to get lycopene in your diet.

Ever since I discovered shochu — a low-calorie alternative to vodka — I've been playing around with different cocktail recipes. My latest is a lighter version of the Bloody Mary but with an Asian twist, and using shochu saves you abut 100 calories. If you can't find shochu in your area, use sake or soju instead. All of these spirits contain fewer calories than vodka and complement the Asian flavors of the drink nicely.

If I liked Bloody Marys, I would try this. But I don't really care much for them, so I'll pass. I'm still on the lookout for shochu, though.
