Ten Favorite Metro Phoenix Bloody Marys

Page 3 of 4

The Bacon Bloody Mary from Maizie's Cafe & Bistro -- More of a meal than a beverage, Maizie's hearty mix is packed full of spicy horseradish, black pepper, and thick tomato juice, but there's one thing that puts this bloody ahead of the pack -- bacon vodka. Yes, this bacon filled drink not only has strips of applewood smoked bacon it also incorporates smokey bacon vodka into the well balanced yet bold mix. Try it out with an order of roasted corned beef Benedict or a plate of biscuits and gravy.

The Verde Mary at Windsor -- We're not huge fans of DIY bloody mary bars, but Windsor has something that you won't find at any other bar in town (at least not that we know about) -- green bloody mary mix! The subtle flavors of fresh tomatillos, green tomatoes, and hint of spice gives this mix a unique base for the plethera of ingredients available to jazz it up. Build yourself a masterpiece with a spoonful of fresh grated horseradish, a splash of one of over a dozen different hot sauces, and tons of pickled veggies. It's a green hangover helping machine!

The Bottomless Bloody at RnR -- That's right, bottomless. As in pay up your $15 and you can drink as many of these spicy, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, vodka filled, bacon garnished drinks as you want. The deal runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. but make sure you get there early -- this place normally has a line out the door by noon and we've seen them run out of bloody mary mix on more than a couple occasions.
