Healthy, because

This is a delicious, non-alchoholic and summery take on the classic bloody mary, and makes an impressive brunch-time beverage.

Feel free to add vodka to this recipe for an alcoholic variation.

This is an exotic drink! Must bacon be added to the drink?

You can definitely omit the bacon. Maybe add another fun garnish in its place like a slice of watermelon on the rim of the glass.
