At Chat Chow TV we are firm believers that weekends are made for Bloody Marys. We can’t think of a drink we crave more to go with our brunch meal our catching up with friends after a long night out.
Imagine our delight when Stoli approached us to take part in their #SearchForMary campaign when it came to South Florida. Their request was simple, find the best Bloody Mary in the area and report back.
Go on a search for the best Bloody Mary in South Florida? We couldn’t sign up fast enough.
Teaming up with our knowledgable Stoli representative @BarbyMarino, we determined a list of our top five ‘Must Try’ Bloody Mary spots in the area. Then we got down to the hard work — taste testing.
(We know, we know, it’s tough job but someone has to do it.)
The criteria was this: we were looking for a drink that packed a spicy punch, had unique garnishes, and an appropriate vodka-to-Bloody Mary mix ratio.
Our next destination was Oceans 234, where we sipped on a few different variations garnished with blue cheese, jumbo shrimp and bacon, while taking in some great ocean views.
Lulu’s Bloody Mary uses a delicious house-made mix seasoned with onion and mustard powder, Asian five spice, Worcestershire sauce, jalapeño and a “little bit of love,” according to our very knowledgeable bartender. It’s then garnished with celery, olives, piquillo peppers, and lots of bacon. We’re talking bacon in the drink, a bacon and celery salt rim along with a bacon infused vodka.
While all the Stoli Bloody Mary’s were great, Lulu’s was definitely the group favorite and the Bloody Mary that was our #SearchForMary winner. Want to join in on the fun? Make sure to join Stoli in their coast-to-coast search for local flavors by following #SearchForMary.
