When it comes to digging into brunch, there's just no reality where we're not enjoying a Bloody Mary as well. Can you even imagine starting a sleepy Sunday after a night out without one? We don't like to think about it, which is why we've rounded up all of our top best Bloody Mary recipes that'll pair perfectly with your eggs Benedict. Bonus: Some of these Bloody Mary recipes are so over the top, they're basically a meal in themselves.
Bloody Marys are an easy choice when it comes to mixing up a signature brunch cocktail. If you're new to home bartending, no need to sweat; you likely have all the ingredients for a Bloody Mary in your pantry already. For a classic, no-fuss Bloody Mary, we start with a mix of tomato juice and vodka, but from there, it can go anywhere. We go a few steps further with a bit of heat from hot sauce, horseradish, and black pepper. We also added pickle juice to ours and highly recommend making some pickle juice ice cubes (like we did for our dill pickle Bloody Marys). Trust us, Future You will be so happy you did.
Ready to level up? Go beyond a celery stick when garnishing your Bloody Marys. There's, uh, more than a few amazingly savory toppers that'll make your cocktails instantly legendary. Some of our top picks? We've been known to garnish our Bloody Marys with mini grilled cheeses, tacos, cheeseburger sliders, and even Flamin' Hot Cheetos. The sky is truly the only limit! Just don't forget to invite us when you make your next round of quesadilla Bloody Marys. 😉
A Bloody Mary is the ever-popular brunch cocktail. It always starts with a mix of tomato juice and vodka, but from there, it can go anywhere. We love our classic with a bit of heat from hot sauce and horseradish and believe black pepper to be an absolute necessity. We also added pickle juice to ours because this is Delish after all, and our motto is that pickles make everything better.

A Bloody Mary is only as good as its garnish, so we topped these off with our favorite tacos. We used a toaster to make our own mini tacos shells, and it's our one of our favorite hacks EVER. Top your tacos with your favorite garnishes and be prepared to be asked to serve these at every brunch, party, and taco Tuesday from here on out.

These aren't just ANY Bloody Marys. Even without the garnishes, they've got a kick! With the lime juice and hot sauce, this cocktail would be just as good with silver tequila as it is with vodka. So choose your own adventure. 😉 And if you're looking for ways to use up that bag of Cheetos, try these Flamin' Hot Chicken Tenders next!
