Nothing beats a relaxing Sunday morning with a great Bloody Mary. There are many restaurants across the Garden State who take pride in the savory concoction which can have a buzz really sneak up on you!

From the traditional celery and horseradish to the more extravagant like shrimp, bacon, and sliders, yes sliders, the Bloody Mary is a blank canvas waiting for the creativity of a good chef or bartender.

I spoke earlier in the week about the great and very creative Bloody Mary at Sheelen's Crossing in Fanwood. It was an entire meal, delicious.
