    The eclectic eatery’s take on the Bloody Mary may look classic upon first glance, but a skewer full of pickled vegetables and grilled prosciutto gives it an edge. If you’re not buzzed enough, add a 6 oz. draft beer chaser for only an additional $1.

    This hotel restaurant takes their Tower 23 Bloody Mary to new heights with their upscale take on the tomato cocktail. The classic vodka is replaced with an infused cilantro/jalapeno one, the glass is lined with a bacon salt rim, and the entire drink is served with a “meal-on-a-stick” (which includes a handful of Italian meat staples).
