Barrio Café
Of all the bloody Marys on this list, this is the only one without any vodka – but the Herradura Silver tequila more than makes up for it. The Bloody Maria from Barrio Café is a spicy drink, topped with a lime wedge and a chile de árbol that's trimmed with a spicy salt rim that runs about halfway down the glass. The drink comes with a $9 price tag, and is only available on Saturday and Sunday.

Cuff
Tucked in one of the many plazas making up historic downtown Glendale, Cuff is a stylish little lunch and dinner spot with an adorable back patio and an impressive drink menu. Find the Cuff Bloody Mary under the Signature Cocktails section of the menu for $9. With a rim encrusted with seasoned salt, the drink is comprised of Tito’s vodka, Ancho Reyes chile liqueur, and tomato juice, then dressed up with a generous strip of bacon, a skewered green olive, and a fresh slice of lime. The best part? This is one bloody you can order every day, all-day starting at 11:30 a.m. (except on Sunday and Monday when the shop is closed), and during happy hour, from 3 to 6 p.m., it'll only cost you $7.

DeSoto Central Market
You’ll need both hands to carry this drink back to your table as the Desoto Central Market's Kraken is rightly dubbed “a meal in a glass.” It comes complete with all the fix-ins – meaning the usual stalk of celery, olive, carrot, and asparagus sticks – plus a straight-up slider and a brownie on the end of the skewer. The Kraken is served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday for $18.

Hambone Sports Bar
Word has traveled far about the phenomenal bloody Mary at this unassuming Mesa pool hall. Longtime bartender Mel makes a mean drink, and her personal bloody Mary concoction deserves all the chatter. The spicy drink comes in a standard pint glass topped with fresh lime, olives, and a shrimp. The light rail runs right past Hambone Sports Bar, so feel free to have a few, but be sure to call ahead (480-833-9839) to see if Mel’s at the bar.
