15 Over-the-Top Bloody Marys Across the US

View as Map

What better way to wrap up Cocktail Week than with a little hair of the dog? And not just your regular plain old boring brunch drinks. No, it's going to take more than a piece of bacon or some jumbo shrimp to stand out in this crowd of totally bonkers Bloody Marys across the United States. Tater Tots? Sure. Donuts? Why not. How about a fried pickle? Or a flight tasting of different types of Bloody Mary? Or a mini bacon cheeseburger? (Yes, really, a mini bacon cheeseburger.) Below, 16 of the most wild Bloody Mary's across the country. Did we miss something from your area that's truly out there? Do speak up in the comments.

Bluephies serves a Bloody Mary flight: an eight-ounce serving of their regular Bloody, their chipotle-infused Bloody Maria, and their Fat Boy, which includes "bacon infused vodka, spiced tomato juice, celery, jalapeno stuffed olives, cocktail onions, pickled asparagus, pickled mushrooms, a strip of bacon, and string cheese."

The Fooze Bloody Mary at Buck's Naked BBQ, Three Locations, Maine

Buck's Naked BBQ — which just opened its third location in Portland — has an entire section of their menu entitled "Fooze." That is, cocktails that come with a rib on top. The Bloody Mary is no exception. [Photo]

The Persian Bloody Mary at Foreign Cinema, San Francisco, California

The bright color of Foreign Cinema's Persian Bloody Mary is enough to wake you up, but add curry and balsamic vinegar and you've got a refreshing twist on a classic.

The Liquid Tailgate at Parlor Sports, Somerville, Massachussetts

Who needs brunch when you've got a Liquid Tailgate: a Bloody Mary with "Appalachian Thermonuclear Beef Jerky- infused vodka, a housemade "mud" horseradish sauce, and tomato juice."

The Bloody Mary at Pizzeria Locale, Boulder, Colorado

Pizzeria Locale does a pizza-style Bloody Mary, featuring Italian apertif Dimi Liquore di Milano in place of vodka. The base for the mix is the same one used on their pizzas, and it's topped with Fior di Latte Mozzarella.
