The Bloody Mary needs an update. We’re not talking about anything crazy like overloading the drink with a buffet of toppings or using bacon-infused vodka (although you should definitely try that). We’re talking about boosting the brunch-time staple with spirits beyond basic vodka and mixers beyond the usual tomato that enhance the cocktail’s core flavors of spicy, savory and spirited.
So we put the Bloody through a Rom-Com-style makeover montage and came up with three new variations: a spritzy, sparkling take; a briny, bottled, sherry-infused version; and a vividly green, sushi-inspired specimen. Brunch can’t come soon enough.
