Summer is coming, and with it comes our taste for a delicious, fresh bloody mary. In Brisbane, the world’s most complex cocktail also happens to be one of the prettiest. Read on for six of our city’s most Instagram-worthy Bloody Marys.
Kettle and Tin
Kettle and Tin resides within an old Queenslander in the heart of Paddington. Their menu boasts four different bloody mary concoctions, from the classic through to the Smokey Goddamn Mary, wine-y Rosa Maria and the Cubana Michelada, which features sriracha. Our taste buds are ready.
Lock’n’Load’s fantastic menu always wins on the drinks front, and we can’t go past their Loaded Bloody Mary. This bad boy mixes vodka, tomato juice, basil, lemon, celery and a sneaky house mix to deliver on freshness every time.
Aptly named The Widowmaker, Sabotage Social's insane Bloody Mary is as much about its toppings as is what's in the glass. Decorated with essential hangover food fodder like a burger, doughnut, dagwood dog, and celery—natch—, this is not for the faint hearted, and is only available on Sundays. You know, when you need it most...
At Slingshot, not only will you get a killer cocktail but also a cosy gallery of art and you can BYO food (more $$ for drinks, yeah?). Their classic Bloody Mary is worth the trip alone, but they also feature a rotating selection of great beers and wines for their faithful regulars.
Riverbar and Kitchen
You can order Bloody Marys by the jug at Riverbar, making it one of Brisbane’s best boozy brunch destinations. Gather your mates to celebrate the weekend by soaking up some sun, midday cocktails and that gorgeous Eagle Street Pier skyline.
Speaking of brunch, Pearl Cafe is another prime spot for some cheeky midday booze consumption! They serve up fresh, tasty meals and are built to accommodate groups, so spread the love and invite your friends along to sample their punchy flavour-packed Bloody Mary for the perfect Sunday.
Keep those peak weekend vibes going with a solid feed. Here's Brisbane's best Parmies for your devouring.
