Ten Favorite Metro Phoenix Bloody Marys

Page 2 of 4

The Humble Bloody at 5th and Wine -- This Scottsdale hideaway may be known for a spectacular wine selection and delicious food but they also make a mean bloody mary. A splash of tomato juice is shaken together with jalapeno infused vodka, garnished with fresh basil and mozzarella, and then served either on the rocks or martini style -- your choice! Be careful -- the jalapeno vodka is as spicy as it sounds and, since there's a lot of it, you'll be well on your way to feeling like a normal person.

Bloody Mary Carafe at Switch Restaurant & Wine Bar -- It's not so much the quality of this breakfast cocktail, but the quantity. Every weekend you can score a carafe filled with bloody mary mix and vodka on the rocks for $3. A WHOLE CARAFE FOR $3!!! And they don't skimp on the booze. We have witnessed a server take an entire bottle of vodka, dump it completely upside down in the carafe, and have a conversation with another server while the bottle emptied its contents into the large carafe. Bring a friend or four to share this massive beverage or else you'll be back in the same hungover boat the next day.

The Bloody Maria at Arcadia Tavern -- Served in a goblet and spicy as all get out, this popular Arcadia watering hole puts a twist on the classic breakfast cocktail by swapping out the vodka for tequila. The concoction is strong enough put that hangover in it's place and it may even put a little hair on your chest. Try it with a strip of crispy bacon and pair it with The Hangover Burger and a side of sweet potato tots for the ultimate weekend lunch.

Tyler's Sunday Bloody Sunday at Casey Moore's -- Every Saturday, Casey Moore's bartender Tyler Froburn whips up a batch of his extra spicy, extra tasty bloody mary mix for the regulars that pack the back patio bar every Sunday. His recipe is top secret but we know that it's full of magic hangover healing qualities, horse radish and red pepper flakes. Combine the secret sauce with a generous pour of vodka, a splash of Guinness, a some tomato juice for color and let the good times roll!
