Coffee Bloody Mary: This is a Bloody Mary has an extra kick from coffee! Try it as a mocktail or a brunch cocktail by adding vodka. It's a zingy, savoury/sweet drink.
You need to plan ahead for cold brew coffee. It's really easy to make but you need to let it sit and do its thing for a while.
A long while.
But trust me, it's worth it for a smooth coffee.
You can get it ready the night before and then in the morning, just throw together this virgin, coffee Bloody Mary - ideal for weekend brunch!
If you're looking for a brunch cocktail, you've come to the right place!
This day-cocktail is punchy, zingy and I really like it spiced up with a dash of tabasco and a little Worcestershire sauce (I use a vegetarian version).
The mellow cold brew coffee isn't overpowering at all and just adds a nice delicate coffee kick to the vibrant flavours in the drink.
You only need simple ingredients for this awesome twist on the classic Bloody Mary Cocktail.
Coffee - I love using cold brew, but any cold coffee works!
Tomato juice - fresh or store bought
Lemon juice - fresh is best!
Sugar syrup - you can buy it or make your own sugar syrup. You only need 10 mins, sugar and water.
Pepper - freshly ground ideally
Worcestershire sauce - or vegan worcestershire sauce.
Vodka - to make it a cocktail!
Celery, rosemary and lemon to garnish

It's a good Bloody Mary!
Wow this is certainly something I've never heard before. It does sound strange but I can sort of see how the tomato flavour would work with a coffee that has fruity notes and I can definitely see how it'd wake you up and get you going! I do love cold brews and personally I think a coffee based drink is a much better way to kick-start your day than a vodka based drink!
What a great idea and better than your average breakfast drink!

I am amazed by this whole idea! Our coffee is black mostly. I'll have to explore this idea when our tomatoes come ripe. Interesting!!
I love cold brew coffee - not sure how it would be in a bloody mary but I am intrigued!! Fab photography. Pinned!

I've never tasted a Bloody Mary so have no idea what it's like to drink tomato juice. This looks so good though I want a jug of it!

Bloody Mary and coffee! Wow sounds very interesting but good! I would love to try this!
These beautiful pictures have convinced me that this drink is nothing but delicious! I can actually see these flavors working well together!
Wow, who'd have thought of coffee and tomato other than you Kate? I'm not really a coffee lover, but this has got me so intrigued I really want to try it. Such a beautiful colour too.

HAHAH...well this just might help with the hangovers....does sound like an interesting combination.
as a not-very-huge-fan of tomato juice, I seldom order a bloody mary - but I recall having one made with beef bouillon that also sounded bizarre but was strangely compelling and fortifying. So I will suspend my disbelief with this one too - and it's a good reminder to me to try making my own cold-brew coffee 🙂
I'm pretty new to the whole cold brew thing, but I have tried it finally and I was pleasantly surprised. I bet I'd love it in this gorgeous Bloody Mary! What a great way to get your caffeine hit!

What a great idea! I never would have thought to make a bloody mary with coffee instead of vodka. You can really taste the difference with BRITA water too.

I adore your food styling and photography on this recipe - stunning! I can't imagine what this drink tastes like... i'm going to have to try it for myself...
Thank you so much, Katie!

What a genius idea!! I've always thought it was weird that people drink alcoholic cocktails for breakfast, this sounds much more sensible 😉
Well, I'm partial to a standard Bloody Mary 😉 , but I love this one as an alternative - it's yummy and I'd have it any time of day!
Wow what a cool idea, it sounds like it would definitely go. A great cause too xx
I know! It's great the Brita and UK Coffee Week have teamed up to give back to the coffee-growing communities. We take for granted that our coffee just appears, but so much goes into those beans.
Oh my! I wasn't taken much by the idea, but that is a personal thing as I can't do tomato. But love coffee. I can actually see it working though.
Great idea for fund raising though. My heart breaks every time I see the adverts on TV about unclean water. It shouldn't happen in our age, but unfortunately it does. The more we do to help the better.
I agree. It's so incomprehensible to struggle just to drink water, so it's great that this 'food week' is really giving back to those who need it.
