The Barnyard Bloody Mary at Farmer's Table

The Barn Yard Mary comes with multiple skewers of roasted seasonal veggies (zucchini, peppers, stuffed mushroom caps), tomato and mozzarella, pickled veggies (pepperoncini, olives, and onions) bacon wrapped shrimp, Mexican street corn (my favorite part), sage fennel sausage, and oh, a WHOLE ROASTED CHICKEN! Not just some dried out chicken, a juicy, moist, and succulent bird. It comes complete with a BBQ drizzle over everything!

Build Your Own Bloody Mary at Davanti Enoteca in Little Italy

Next, a qualified assistant walks you through the bloody mary bar and builds it for you! Because one does not, “build your own”. You let your bloody mary assistant know how spicy you want it (there is a large array of hot sauces to choose from) on a scale of 1-10, she adds Worcestershire sauce and fresh lemon juice and then your journey begins. Courtney and I went in two different directions for our toppings. Courtney chose bacon, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, ham, and a few veggies. I went for a kosher salt rim, pepper, celery salt, chili powder, pickled carrots, cauliflower, and peppers.

The bloody best, bloody mary, is an array of delectable food items with their own unique flavor and creative menu names to Chef Point Cafe. First off, the mix is made in-house, is spicy and garlicky as heck and full of seasonings. Delicious and not conventional tasting in the slightest. It brings that fire, brought on by the Tabasco and Worcestershire, thank goodness for the beer chaser! The 16oz beer is accompanied by an additional 16oz of bloody mary and they don't go easy on the Tito's Vodka either, so get ready to get tipsy! 

Road Trip Bloody Marys at a Piece Brewery and Pizzeria

It was dreadfully hot and humid during our stay so after spending hours being tourists and walking for miles, we headed back to the Wicker Park area and decided to get some pizza and found Piece Pizzeria and Brewery. I got the menu and saw they had a bloody mary, and while all the house beers on tap sounded delicious, my inner tomato-loving self once again told me to go for it, and I wasn’t disappointed. It was cool and refreshing, just what I needed after all that walking.

Jacked Up Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar at Hell's Kitchen, Minneapolis

After accidentally ordering just a “regular” bloody mary, finally, my mug of vodka and Hell’s Kitchen original bloody mary mix arrived so I could high-tail it to the 35-foot long black icicle hallway. I couldn’t believe my eyes! This is no ordinary build your own bloody mary bar! Over 200 different kinds of hot sauces and a smorgasbord of goodies! I didn’t add any extra hot sauce to mine, but I sure did load up on the food. I did a celery salt rim, olives, cherry tomatoes, pickles, capers, garlic, green, red and yellow peppers, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, asparagus, cucumbers, olives, extra horseradish, corn, and 2 chicken wings, one honey bbq flavored and the other coated with a dry rub. They have no limit to how much you can stuff in your mug as long as the skewers fit in your glass!
