The Watching Dead: Bloody Mary’s Beeting Heart

The Walking Dead season finale is so close and our hearts are beeting with excitement. Just like our Bloody Mary Beeting Heart! We were inspired by this heart jello mold recipe to make a bloody mary bleeding beet blood heart. We made a large jar of beet juice blood and a batch of spicy bloody mary’s. The bloody mary was mixed with gelatin and added to our heart mold. We made a small bag of the beet blood and nestled it in the center of the half filled heart. We displayed our heart during dinner and gave her a good stab halfway through the meal.

Beet Blood
Juice beets (or alternatively you can use the juice from a can), and put the liquid in a saucepan. Make a slurry by mixing about 2 tablespoons of corn starch with cold water until you have a thick mixture. Bring juice to boil. Add the cornstarch paste to the boiling juice. Continue to cook for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. The mixture is ready to use when cooled down. It will thicken when cool. We kept ours pretty runny since this was to ooze and squirt out of the heart when stabbed. We also used the extra beet blood to decorate Tyreese’s Bashed Potatoes.

Bloody Mary’s Beeting Heart

  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4C hot water
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 dashes hot sauce
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire
  • dollop A1
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 C vodka
  • 1/4 C beer
  • lemon juice

Bloom gelatin in hot water for 2 mins. Meanwhile, heat the tomato soup. Add all remaining ingredients except for the vodka, beer and lemon juice. Add bloomed gelatin to the soup mixture and bring to a boil while whisking. Remove from heat. Add lemon, vodka and beer once cooled. Grease heart mold and pour a small amount of the mixture in the heart (about 1/2″ worth). Refrigerate to set. Fill bag with beet blood and tie tightly shut. Lay blood bladder in the middle of the heart and fill with remaining tomato mix. Chill overnight.
