• The 9 BEST Bloody Marys in Hoboken {Based on Your Cravings}

    Written by:

    It’s a weekend morning after a night out in Hoboken, and you need some tomato juice and vodka to cure that serious hangover — STAT. But, where to get that coveted hair of ze dog? To save you some time and energy {because we all know that hangover doesn’t play}, we’ve done the hard work for you and found nine Hoboken spots to get your Bloody Mary on in the trendiest way possible {and to prep yourself for everything you’ve got to get finished before Monday unfortunately rolls around}.



    But before we take a sip, let’s have a brief history lesson. After all, aren’t you curious why the drink has such a high-key disturbing name? There are multiple theories behind the birth of the drink, but here are some possible stories thanks to Liquor.com:

    • Fernand “Pete” Petiot, a bartender, first mixed the concoction while working in Paris. Then he moved to Manhattan, renamed the drink as the “Red Snapper,” and tweaked the recipe to adapt to Americans’ tastes.
    • Here’s the story you’ve probably heard: that the drink is named after Queen Mary I of England. The tomato juice represents the blood spilled, and the vodka symbolizes the queen executing martyrs. Cool that you’re kind of drinking history, no?

    Now that you’ve got the knowledge, you’ve earned your drink! Here are our picks below:

    For a Make-Your-Own Bloody Experience: House of ‘Que {340 Sinatra Drive}

    If you’re bored of the same ol,’ same ol’ Bloody Marys {and are craving some BBQ to boot}, get artsy and create your own on Saturdays and Sundays from 11-3 p.m. Plus, you can jam out with live music from noon-3PM. Bacon in your bBoody is just the tip of the iceberg.


    For a Bloody Mary in a Fancy Setting: Amanda’s Restaurant {908 Washington Street}

    You’ll be cool as a cucumber {or all jazzed up} with the Cucumber Bloody Mary at Amanda’s, the upper midtown spot that is perfect for a date night or brunch date with the rents. Their Cuke Bloddy is infused with cucumber vodka rather than your regular Tito’s, making a fun twist on the classic. Who knows, perhaps the cucumber can invoke its healing powers, counteracting the puffiness and bloating you typically get from drinking. Fingers crossed — but at least we tried.

    At this southwest Hoboken spot, you’ll get a side of bacon on your plate with an extra helping of bacon in your booze. It’s crispy and delicious, and you won’t regret anything {unless you’re vegan…}.
