Basil Bloody Mary

Basil Bloody Mary recipe www.abeautifulmess.comMy husband loves bloody marys like you wouldn’t believe. Lately I’ve been getting into experimenting with new flavors again. Last time we were flying, we made a gigantic list of bloody mary flavor ideas. One night, we even tried a pickle bloody mary. I loved it, he didn’t.

This recipe is simple and straightforward. If you like basil, you’ll love it. The cheese is a fun bonus too!
