12 Bloody Good Marys in San Francisco


Fiery, sweet, or peppery, there's nothing quite like a good Bloody Mary.

When it comes to brunch cocktails, beyond a yummy mimosa, there's no denying that the Bloody Mary reigns supreme. With a multitude of pungent flavors varying from mild and sweet to spicy and zesty, the options are endless; and with a tomato base and celery and pickled green beans for toppings, it's basically a salad, right? You can even toss in a bacon strip for some protein. We won't tell.


Forget one, this Castro watering hole has seven Bloody Marys on their menu, all named after famous Marys. Harvey's is serving up everything from the pepper-infused vodka Bloody Mary Lou Retton, to the citrusy Bloody Mary Tyler Moore, to the tequila-splashed Bloody Mary Montez. We love them all. // 500 Castro St. (Castro),
