Summer Fridays: 5 must-follow bloody mary bloggers

Chicago’s Bloody Mary Competition is on Sunday! The fact that it sold out super quickly says we’re not the only ones who love this amazing brunch cocktail. Duh.

In fact, we’re not the only bloody mary bloggers out there. Truly. We weren’t the first and certainly won’t be the last. Luckily, these likeminded folks on a similar pursuit can show you the ropes in the bloody mary scene wherever you live or travel outside Chicago. Here are five bloody mary bloggers we love and with whom we’d love to share a drink.

Out for Bloodies

Based in the other city obsessed with the bloody mary, Milwaukee, Catlin Moyer gives you honest reviews of the bloodies in her fair city, served with a side of sass. Plus, she travels quite a bit (note: she works for a sports team) and gives you a taste of the bloody mary scenes in places like Arizona and SF. From what we know of her, we’d love to drink some bloodies with this girl.

The Drunken Tomato

Shelley Buchanan means serious business when it comes to bloody marys. She’s your go-to resource for all things bloody mary in SoCal. She even recently published a bloody mary book of the same name and is taking her bloody mary empire nationwide. Plus, we simply love her “celery stalk” rating system.

Bloody Mary Tourist

We love this blog because it’s a bloody mary and travel guide all in one. Our lovely tour guide travels for work and we get to benefit with reviews and travel tips from places like Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Boca Raton, Seattle…and the list continues.

Damn Good Bloody Mary

This Brooklyn-based bloody mary blog is a newer one on our radars. The photos alone make us want to hop on a plane to NYC and brunch in the boroughs  ASAP.

Bloody Marys of Milwaukee

Shannon, who’s also a lovely photographer by trade, runs Bloody Marys of Milwaukee, another blog documenting this Midwest city’s love of our tomato brunch cocktail. Besides the delicious looking drinks, she has a handy guide to the best and worst contenders. Between this blog and Out for Bloodies, we’ve made Milwaukee a must-stop this summer.

Honorable mention goes to fellow Chicagoan Jeff from Best Bloody Mary Blog. While we’re featuring out of town folks in this post, we hope to meet you at the Bloody Mary Competition this week.

Any other bloody mary blogs out there we should know about? Shout them out. Happy bloody mary drinking this weekend, everyone!
