There’s an old saying: “If you do brunch without a Bloody Mary, you’re just doing a sad, late breakfast.”

Or something like that.

I didn’t like Bloody Marys in college, but everybody told me that as soon as I hit 22 and had my first bad hangover, a Bloody Mary would change my life forever, and it’s true.

My Sundays used to feel wasted if I didn’t take my normal brunch spots up on the mimosa specials, but now it’s all about a Bloody Mary. Or two.

Regardless of what you’re looking for in your Bloody Mary this weekend (my checklist includes cheap, DIY and good toppings), you’ll find it.
