If you're someone who loves to #brunchsohard, you know about the magical, mystical powers of Bloody Marys. Half cocktail, half meal in a glass, Bloody Marys have the power to cure hangovers, serve as a meal stand-in, and allow you the ability to drink at 10am without getting disapproving stares from various loved ones.
But when it comes to drinking (and creating!) a good Bloody Mary, it's all about the mix. Some too thin and watery, some so thick all the pepper and horseradish gets caught in the straw and makes it impossible to drink—if you're on the hunt for a great Bloody Mary, it really comes down to the type of mix being used. It's the reason why no two Bloody Marys are the same.
So, we've rounded up the very best Bloody Mary mixes so you can craft your own perfect Bloody Mary at home. And while Mrs. T's and V8 can work in a pinch, we're going a bit higher brow and hipster with our mix choices. After all, what's more hipster than brunch? Nothing (well, except maybe old timey moustaches). Read it on Parade.
