When it comes to brunch, you’re either firmly team mimosa, or team bloody mary. The occasional, pretentious few prefer a bellini or a breakfast cocktail to mix things up, but generally, those are your staples. Let me start out by saying that bloody marys are an acquired taste. We used to endlessly tease my first friend who got on the bloody train, but eventually, she kept ordering them, and they kept calling my name. I’d stare at her alcoholic tomato juice with garnishings through my fizzy orange juice with envy. Each time, I’d ask for a sip, taste it, and confirm that the concoction just wasn’t for me. Until one day, when it finally was.
Out of nowhere, I decided, I actually liked this weird drink. I ordered one myself and my life was forever changed. The world of bloody mary bars was finally opened to me. Specialty drinks featuring bacon — maybe even shrimp! — were now mine for the drinking. And if I was very lucky, I might some day encounter a bloody mary like one of these.
