This recipe was inspired by Tyler Florence's "Fresh White Bloody Mary"
A couple of weeks ago I was watching a Tyler's Ultimate show on the Food Network. One of the items he made was a white bloody mary that looked really good so I decided to make a simple, non-alcoholic version of it. While I was shopping for the ingredients, I noticed the items I chose to use in my version were all natural detoxifiers so I decided to do a little research to learn about the various health benefits of the ingredients (see the ingredient benefits after the recipe).
