Office Argument: Who Makes The Best Bloody Mary in Dallas?

The gals in the office are chatting about all of the Bloody Marys they drank over the weekend. So far, they have narrowed their favs down to two: The Grape and La Duni. They want to sample more. Where shall they go? (Does anyone deliver?)

  1. Bolsa has a good one. They’ll top it with a Lone Star beer “floater” and make it super spicy if that’s how you like it.

  2. I’m a fan of the places that let you build your own – Ozonas, Holy Grail, etc. Everyone has a different taste for Bloody Marys, but the bar has to start with good mix and vodka ratios. I didn’t like Bloody Marys that came pre-mixed from the bar becasue there was always something wrong – too spicy, too salty, too much mix, etc. Let the customer finish off their own with all the fixings.

  3. Had several at Villa-O yesterday (fyi, bottomless on Sat and Sunday) that were great. They put some of their special spicy marinara in it, which is surprisingly good!

  4. Unfortunately Amy’s Absolut-ely Outrageous Bloody Mary Vodka take a few weeks to infuse with: horseradish root, fresh dill, celery seed, peppercorns, jalapeno. But once it’s done all you need to add is worcestershire sauce and V-8.

  5. My husband is THE expert and swears by Hattie’s. Homemade tomato base and just spicy enough.

  6. Although not the best I’ve ever had, the bloddy mary’s at penne pomorodo are pretty damn good for only a $1 per drink w/brunch.

  7. Obviously I’m prejudiced but I firmly believe the “tableside” bloody mary’s at Maximo during Sunday Brunch are the best and why? Because our guests create their own recipe. We start with Chef Mora’s bloody mary base which is partially derived from his tortilla soup base and from there we add a variety of flavors and spices. We use the same flavors that compliment our tableside guacamole and ceviche. The end result though is guest driven and we see return guests every Sunday for our Bloody Mary Tableside.
    Oh, and you can select any premium vodka we offer. My preference is Absolute Peppar.

  8. Bloody Mary?
