Did you know that Jan. 1 was National Bloody Mary Day? We didn’t either. I suppose sip happens, but to make sure we don’t sip up again we have compiled a list of the bloody best bloody marys we can find in the Soda City.
For those who are not familiar with this brunchy beverage – a bloody mary typically combines vodka with a tomato juice mixture, which can be modified based on your heat preference. Some also go a little wild throwing in Worcestershire sauce, pickle juice, extra hot sauce, horseradish, or salt + pepper to really make the drink their own.
A bloody mary is not only the best companion to brunch but can actually be a meal in itself if you know where to go to find the best toppings. The possibilities are endless for a bloody garnish, from adding a slice of bacon to a variety of pickled veggies in addition to the citrus, celery and olives. ProTip – always go for the stuffed olives.
Let’s celery-brate the sips we found locally now that we all have bloodys on the brain.
