Whether you’re nursing a hangover from the night before or looking to accidentally get one going, brunch would not be brunch without the over-the-top meal in a glass that is the Bloody Mary. Yep, sorry Mimosas, but we've moved on to something with a little more bite. From unpretentious to outta control, here’s where you’ll find the city’s best Bloody Mary concoctions.
Keith Overton of Tin Angel is serious about Blood Marys. So serious, in fact, that he spent 12 years perfecting his recipe. While he’s not about to spill the beans (we don’t really blame him), he has revealed his best-selling Bloody Mary is a mixture of tomato juice, V8 and horseradish…and a whole lot of super-secret deliciousness. Serving brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays, we recommend getting there early if you want to partake, as they don’t take brunch reservations and tend to stay pretty busy.
Possessing a thicker consistency than most Bloody Marys, Jackson’s Dirty Mary is made with Whiskey Willy’s Bloody Mary Mix—a spicy tomato juice with horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, salt, spices and sugar. It’s available on the brunch menu from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Stone Fox
Said to offer West Nashville’s best Bloody Mary, The Stone Fox uses a homemade mix and tops it off with all the fixins. You can partake of the awesomeness on Saturdays and Sundays beginning at 11 a.m.
For those of you who like options, Tavern offers three variations of the classic brunch drink: the Wicked Bloody Mary featuring house-infused Stoli, olives, pepperoncini and jalapeños; a Cucumber Mary with house-infused cucumber vodka; and spicy Bloody Mary mix or a Tomatillo Mary with tomatillos, chiles and cilantro. Get your fix from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
