Making Bloody Marys from actual tomatoes

Hey everyone
I'd like to (for no special reason) make Bloody Marys from tomatoes, as opposed to buying bottled/canned tomato juice. How would I go about that (I do not have a juicer)? Can I literally throw whole tomatoes into my food processor? Any ideas?

I am really not sure how you would go about doing this unless you want to eat your bloody mary with a fork. You need tomato juice, so if you can find a way of juicing them without getting all the skin, seeds and pulp, but it would probably take a lot of tomatoes. A food mill maybe?

I'm with GB. You would need to convert the tomatoes to juice. Not a very difficult task if you have all of the right tools. A food mill or juicer of some type. They would need to be cored, quartered, heated somewhat, and run through the juicer, sieve etc.

if you don't have a food mill you could chop the tomatoes into a pulp, then strain the juice through a fine colander.

i kinda like the idea of a slighty chewy bloody mary, though.

I use MR. and Mrs. T's mix with a bit of tweaking. Works for me!

I enjoy Bloody Mary's made from home canned juice, but my go to mix is Major Peters Original! It's a Winner!!
