Gazpacho Bloody Mary
This refreshing Bloody Mary features yellow tomatoes, celery, and carrots. Michael Kraus

We got the idea for this refreshing drink from the New York City mixologist Dale DeGroff; we love the fresh yellow color of the drink. The recipe appeared on the SAVEUR 100 list from our January/February 2010 issue.
