This Bloody Mary mocktail is downright chuggable after a hot summer run. “Typically people think of tomato juice for savory drinks, but I like to hone in on the fruity side of the tomato. The coconut water makes this drink light and vegetal with just a breeze of tropicality,” says Julia Momose, owner of Kumiko and recipe creator. Studies have shown that coconut water can have the same hydrating benefits as traditional sports drinks, but with less sugar. The addition of strawberries adds high levels of anti-inflammatory antioxidants to help your post-run muscles.
