Nothing completes a brunch like that perfect Bloody Mary. Fortunately for Atlantans we’ve got a tremendous offering of these potent brunch cocktails. Here’s your guide to the best Bloody Marys in Atlanta.
Get the Sake Bloody Mary, which provides a unique variation on a popular brunch libation. Made with Japanese rice wine and garnished with your favorite veggies, you’ll be back again and again for this one.
Barcelona Wine Bar
The perfect location for the beverage connoisseur, Barcelona Wine Bar’s Bloody Mary includes lots of beautiful fixin’s.
Bone Lick BBQ
If you like spicy, get the Proud Mary, made with house hot pepper moonshine. It complements the spicy brunch dishes quite well.
The Buckhead location has a large Bloody Mary bar, where you can put together the perfect Blood Mary to go with any one of the delectable brunch entrees like the oysters Benedict. However, Dantanna’s does make a killer custom Bloody Mary with pureed San Marzano tomatoes.
Like your Bloody Mary’s on the meaty side? The Elbow Room calls its Bloody Mary the Hail Mary; it comes with a bacon slice, meatball, pepperoni, salami, capicola, olives, jalapeño, lime wedge and a slice of stromboli.
Holeman and Finch
You know this spot serves up some very creative cocktails, but you may not know how incredible the Bloody Mary is. It is so popular, the mix now comes bottled.
Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall
Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall makes its version spicy with St. George Green Chile Vodka and Charleston Bloody mix. It is great for sipping in Ladybird’s outdoor “Grove” area.
While the food is good, people come here for the views of Piedmont Park and the humongous Bloody Marys. The behemoth drinks should be shared by two. The Nook’s Bloody Mary is topped with meats, pickled items and more.
This Buckhead spot takes custom Bloody Marys to a new a level. Fill out a card with your choice of items including vodka, salt and condiment selections, and you’ll have your custom brunch drink delivered to your table in minutes.
Red Pepper Taqueria
The Bloody Mary, served during weekend brunch, pairs nicely with brunch dishes like the Buckhead Biscuit and Chilaquiles Fiesta.
Tupelo Honey Café
Increasingly an Atlanta favorite, and with quite tasty offerings, is Tupelo Honey Café. Get the “Queen Mary,” featuring jalapeno/poblano-infused moonshine, pimento cheese-stuffed olives, grilled shrimp and maple-peppered bacon.
TWO Urban Licks
Get Proud Mary Ma – made with sriracha, hoisin, ginger wasabi, lemongrass — or the Caprese, with 20-year balsamic, basil and mozzarella balls. How amazing does that sound?
Wahoo! Decatur Grill
Soju Bloody Mary (a customer favorite) is made with soju, pickled ginger brine, wasabi, bold and spicy mix, teriyaki-togarashi rim and pickled ginger.
