For When You Want Bacon In Your Drink: The Hamilton Inn {708 Jersey Avenue}

Both the regular Bloody Mary and the Bacon Bloody Mary are equally delicious. For $5, the regular version will certainly satisfy. But, when one has the option to add bacon, you add bacon! The mix is slightly spicy with a good amount of horseradish but isn’t so thick that you feel like you’re drinking Gazpacho.

For When You’re In The Mood For A Little Seafood: Liberty Prime Steakhouse {111 Montgomery Street}

Liberty Prime Steakhouse

The Bloody Caesar is a popular choice at Liberty Prime — served with a raw clam in the shell and made with vodka, clamato Bloody Mary mix, celery juice, and a touch of Old Bay salt {the ‘surf’ to your ‘turf’}. If that doesn’t float your boat {sorry, had to}, they also have a traditional Bloody Mary and a Bloody Hell made with gin and cucumber.

This is a pretty traditional and straightforward version but a bit on the spicy side. Pairs well with basically everything on their delicious brunch menu.

For When You Want To Watch The Game: Brightside Tavern {141 Bright Street}

This neighborhood spot serves up a really delicious Bloody Mary. Not only was the mix a perfect balance of savory, tang, and spice, but the “loaded” version comes with bacon, olives, celery, a dill pickle, and jerky straws.

For When You’re On A Budget: Amelia’s Bistro {187 Warren Street}

Amelia’s Bistro

On weekends from 10aAM-3PM, Amelia’s serves $4 Bloody Marys, and it really can’t be beaten. Nothing fancy here, just a traditional, yummy Bloody Mary for under five bucks.
