The Bloody Mary: That thick, spicy, tomato juice and vodka concoction meant to take the edge off the morning after a night out. They’re deceptively simple, but prepare to suffer through the rest of your migas if it’s mixed poorly. Here are a few surefire picks for a quality Bloody Mary in Dallas.


Bolsa

614 W Davis St
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 943-1883

The Bolsa mixologists are among the best in town, which certainly sets the restaurant’s Bloody Mary on a higher level than its peers. It comes spicy and strong and is garnished with a sweet pickle instead of the more traditional celery stick. It’s a perfect balance, and more soothing than Advil. Plus, it’s half-off on Sundays.


Smoke

901 Fort Worth Ave.
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 393-2300

Smoke likes to do things itself. This newish Oak Cliff barbecue joint smokes all its food in-house, and pays the same attention to detail in its cocktails. The vodka used in the Bloody Mary comes from homemade infusions. The carrot, green bean and jalapeno garnish? Those are pickled in-house, too. There’s a real dedication to the Bloody Mary at Smoke that shines through in its quality ingredients.

La Grange

2704 Elm St.
Dallas, TX 75226

La Grange is a Texas affair. There’s usually a band playing during brunch-time, which perfectly complements the southern food and the giant, spicy Bloody Marys. They’re garnished with olives and come with a serious kick – both spice, and alcohol. They’re simple and delicious, and I haven’t even mentioned the fact that “generous” is probably too soft of a word to describe how big these things are.


Ozona

615 Greenville Ave.
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 265-9105

So, maybe you didn’t take our advice and frequent the above restaurants for a Bloody Mary. Maybe you had a few of bad ones that have made you really disenchanted with the way Dallas makes its brunch beverages. When you went home last week after eating at restaurant X, you swore up and down that you could make a better Bloody Mary than that hack behind the bar. Well, here’s your chance. Visit Ozona for its Sunday Bloody Mary bar. Add the ingredients yourself, including shrimp and chunks of avocado. Now you can mess up your own drink, or upstage all those other restaurants.
