And, not only is it a tasty sipping treat, but it’s very easy to make. It takes only about 25 minutes to prepare, cook and serve.
And for those who aren’t drinkers and don’t want to “spike the soup,” just leave out the vodka. Always delicious, and you will always have people asking for more…
– 1 can chicken or vegetable broth
– 1 28-oz. can plum tomatoes
– 1 celery stalk, diced
– 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– 2 tsp hot pepper sauce
– 1/4 tsp of salt
– 1/2 cup vodka
Ingredients for the horseradish cream:
– 1/2 cup sour cream
– 1 Tbsp horseradish
Combine first six ingredients into large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 2 minutes.
Transport soup to a blender or food processor and purée mixture until very smooth. You’ll need to do this in 2 batches. Return the puréed soup to saucepan and stir in vodka. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
While the soup is cooking, combine sour cream and horseradish to make the horseradish cream.
Serve Bloody Mary Appetizer Soup in cute and festive bowls or mugs. You then top each filled bowl with a small spoonful of the horseradish cream. For nice presentation, just add a small piece of celery leaf.
Quick Tip: You can make this soup one day ahead and serve either warm or chilled depending on your mood and the weather. Either way, it is refreshing and comforting at the same time.
