Tomato juice has skeeved us out since childhood, so we’re not the person to ask, but apparently it’s Bloody Mary time, because we saw two items within 20 minutes on them today and that’s plenty for us to declare a trend. First up, go to Chicagoist for a list of the 14 best Bloody Marys, which shows that the Bloody Mary is up there with the Meat-Lovers’ Pizza when it comes to letting creators overdo it on ingredients; you can have it with aquavit at The Fountainhead, salami, parmesan and a splash of Guinness at The Twisted Spoke, wasabi and sriracha at Tweet Let’s Eat, and so on. Then head over to Thrillist, who induced O’davey’s Pub in Fond Du Lac to make the most absurdly over the top Bloody Mary ever, which looks like Carmen Miranda’s headgear.
