‘Tis the season for overindulging in wine, eggnog, spiked apple cider, cranberry cocktails, peppermint schnapps... the list goes on; and nothing cures a hangover quite like a delicious Bloody Mary! I had the tough job of tasting Bloody Mary’s all over Seattle and found the best one’s to cure any winter blues.
Bell + Whete
Weekend brunch is one of the finest parts of life, and you won’t be disappointed by the food or Blood Mary’s at Belltown’s Bell + Whete. They’ve got two gourmet drinks to choose from: The Archbishop with housemade pickles and Landjäger, and the Foreman with smoked tomato, bacon and onion.
The Maple Bar
If the idea of a tiny grilled cheese in your Bloody Mary gets your tummy growling, then head over to the Roosevelt neighborhood’s The Maple Bar for their bottomless Bloody Mary bar.
That’s right, BOTTOMLESS. For 14 bucks you can cancel the rest of your weekend plans and sip delicious, boozy tomato concoctions all day long.
This shockingly delicious brunch restaurant is hidden inside the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue. It features an amazing breakfast buffet as well as a Bloody Mary bar where you can stock up your drink for $3. I love stuffing as much bacon into my cup as possible!
Ask for bartender Lindsay, aka “Master of the Bloody Mary’s,” at this favorite Burien Bar and I guarantee your hangover will disappear. I love the perfect amount of chunky salt she puts on the rim and the pickled asparagus to munch on.
Bar Sue is one of the only bars on Capitol Hill that still legitimately feels like a dive bar. If you’re really looking to soak up a hangover, belly up at the bar and order a Bloody Mary and the Double D’s Chicken Samich.
I have two words for why you need to try this Asian-inspired Bloody Mary: Pho broth.
With six different Bloody Mary’s to choose from, you’re sure to feel satisfied at Hattie’s Hat. My favorite is the Five Alarm Mary with house infused serrano chile vodka. It's perfectly spicy and full of delicious umami.
And, of course, no Seattle Bloody Mary list could be complete without the insane(ly delicious) drink from Sam’s Tavern. This famous Bloody Mary is made with infused bacon vodka and then topped with a cheeseburger slider. But you must remember this important detail: It’s not on the menu! You have to be in the know to get this yummy drink. Here are some more photos from when Seattle Refined first discovered this outrageous cocktail.
