Bloody Good Bloody Marys


When I was younger, the idea of drinking tomato juice and alcohol, separately or together, seemed like some sort of method of torture. Somewhere along the way though–perhaps after a few college hangovers–I discovered how refreshing an ice cold, slap-you-in-the-face spicy and spiked tomato juice, also known as a Bloody Mary, can be.



Part of the fun when ordering a Bloody Mary is that everyone has their own special recipe or variation. From Mexican- to Asian- and Southern-inspired twists, you can find any variety of flavors in this boozy brunch staple. So whip up the original, first served at the St. Regis New York in 1934, then try four of our favorite variations from around the globe! Then, if you’re up for it, or still standing, make up your own version and share it with us in the comments!
