It may be an unpopular opinion… but I’m going to say it. Bloody Mary’s are gross and easily the most overrated, unnecessary brunch drink.
For the life of me, I can’t understand… what is the hype? They look gross. They taste awful. Who wants to drink something that should be stewed in a pot for six hours? It’s like if someone threw vodka in cold chicken broth and called it a “fall cocktail.”
Going through the list of ingredients, it reads like a grocery list for someone who is filling up the pantry in a CIA torture chamber. Vodka, tomato juice, hot sauce, horseraddish.., most of these ingredients aren’t good on their own, who the hell thought it would be a bright idea to put them all together?!? And enjoy with cinnamon rolls? Cinnamon rolls?!? The only thing I can think of that would compliment a cinnamon roll (or literally any other brunch sweet) less is a Bloody Mary.
There are so many other drinks I could think of that I’d rather enjoy brunch with… a mimosa, a Screwdriver, a Bellini, hell even a God damn milkshake! Why the hell would anyone voluntarily drink this vodka-tomato shitshow?
Bloody Mary’s have no room in our brunches and in our society. I’m taking a firm stand here to abolish Bloody Mary’s from every brunch I attend, moving forward.
