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.


It'd be a crime to talk about San Francisco Bloody Marys without giving Zeitgeist a shout-out. Their's is the perfect balance of spicy, smooth, and strong, with a generous amount of vegetables to balance it out; and it's best enjoyed outside on the biergarten patio. // 199 Valencia St. (The Mission),
