13 Great Michigan Restaurants That Serve Up a Mean Bloody Mary
Amazing bloody marys can be found all over the great state of Michigan.
In Michigan, bars, restaurants, breweries, and more are constantly striving to provide the best drinks possible to their customers. Brewers look for the best quality ingredients, pubs offer brews for every palette, and so on. However, when it comes to bloody marys, the rule books get thrown out of the window.
The original bloody mary is said to have only contained seven ingredients that include vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, celery salt, Tabasco, and lemon juice. The modern bloody mary is way different and can contain anything under the sun.
I know that we don't technically have a "season" for bloody marys, but I always find that they taste better during the fall and winter, especially in Michigan. There's nothing better than waking up to a hearty and spicy bloody mary after a long night out with friends, such as the night before Thanksgiving. Bloody marys just hit differently after a holiday party and make you hate yourself less.
One of the main reasons that they make you feel so much better after a night out is that they have evolved to become a hair-of-the-dog drink and a meal all in one. Nowadays you can find anything in a bloody mary. Hell, for $50 at one of the locations listed below you can get an entire rotisserie chicken on your bloody mary!
