Happy Hour: Bloody Maria

Besides the requisite cup of coffee, my favorite brunch drink is the Bloody Mary. But after trying the Bloody Maria, I think I may need to reconsider.

A Bloody Maria is essentially a Bloody Mary made with tequila instead of vodka. While vodka is essentially flavorless, tequila packs a toasted, oaky, tart punch, adding even more kick to a drink that's already full of hot and tart flavors.

I love bold food and drink, so I thought this was absolutely delicious. Hail Maria, full of taste!

Hm. Sounds like it would be pretty good. But I usually stick to my usuals. Don't like to mix things up to much. I'll try it, but Mary will always be my first love.

I hate tomato juice, but I make bloody marys all the time for my husband who says I make a great one. I'll have to give this one a try for him next time.

I've heard these are great and if you like Tequila you'll never go back to a regular bloody mary. Surprisingly I haven't had one yet, and I absolutely LOVE bloody Mary's and Tequila. I just can't imagine drinking tequila in tomato juice for some reason?

I have never had the bloody maria - I will have to give this a try in the next few weekends!

wow - i'm thinking that made the wrong way and the bloody maria could pack quite the punch for brunch. hmm..tequilla at breakfast? that could be a nice change of pace ...for some folks. i'm still a bit skittish around tomato juice though, so this one's probably not for me.

How about using that new tabasco tequila you featured two weeks ago? That could be tasty...

I've had both, but hubby was a bartender and he made a mean BBQ'd Mary. Just add pineapple juice.
