Sexy Charcuterie in a Glass, The Tower23 Bloody Mary at JRDN

The Tower23 bloody mary had a stunning presentation; glistening in the sunbeams on the oceanfront patio, It was almost too pretty to drink! JRDN infuses their vodka with jalapeños and cilantro. I personally love cilantro, it gives meals and drinks such a refreshing and floral taste, in the best way possible. The mix is made in-house with a mild flavor but has that last second kick from the jalapeño infusion and spices. The jalapeños gave the bloody a perfect amount of heat, making it drinkable for lovers of all spice-levels.

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.

When I started to read the menu, and saw all the scrumptious dishes and a bloody mary menu, I knew it would be worth the wait! Let me just say, it totally was! 

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.

Leaving Minnesota Behind, Horseradish Vodka Bloody Marys at Moscow on the Hill in Saint Paul

It was 4:30 p.m. during the week so, quite honestly, I wasn’t thinking about having a bloody mary. However, when I read the drink menu and saw under Moscow Cocktails: The Bloody Russian, I couldn’t refuse my inner tomato-loving-self telling me to go for it. I am so glad I did because this bloody mary was top notch!
