No one really knows exactly who invented the Bloody Mary. A couple bars from the 1930s claim the rights to creating the cocktail, and some say that it's named after a British queen — but origins aside, there is fortunately no shortage of fine Bloody Marys in Dallas. A favorite of the hungover brunch crowd, you can find bartenders pouring up their own tomato-based concoctions infused or garnished with all kinds of unusual ingredients. Call a designated driver, then get ready to drink your vegetable intake with these eight delicious Bloody Marys.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Tanoshii Ramen

Copy Link
2724 Commerce St
Dallas, TX 75226
The Bloody Mary is a thoroughly American cocktail, but it’s even better with a little Japanese influence. At Tanoshii in Deep Ellum, bartenders mix togarashi, sriracha, and soy into a traditional Bloody Mary base for a fresh take on the classic.

2. Anvil Pub

Copy Link
2638 Elm St
Dallas, TX 75226
(214) 741-1271
What would a Bloody Mary list be without a mention of Anvil Pub’s epic monstrosity, the F**K Brunch Bloody Mary? The drink changes each time the Anvil hosts its monthly middle middle finger to the city’s ubiquitous brunch crowds, but you can expect wacky garnishes like artisan cheese and cheeseburger sliders. At $20, it’s surprisingly worth the splurge (it also comes with a side of beer, because why not).

3. Boulevardier

Copy Link
408 N Bishop Ave, Ste 108
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 942-1828
Visit Website
Friends don't let friends drink bottled Bloody Mary mix. Boulevardier’s house mix is a little something special -- build your Bloody with top-shelf vodka or get adventurous with a little habanero tequila for the perfect accompaniment to your beef tongue hash or eggs meurette.

4. The Grape

2808 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206

Chef Brian Luscher’s Bloody Mary at The Grape doesn’t need any fancy accoutrements to stand out. The simple-yet-delicious spicy cocktail is a great bargain at $6, especially if you ask for an extra shot of Worcestershire to really punch up the flavor. (And maybe an extra shot of vodka, if last night was rough.)

5. Jonathon's Oak Cliff

Copy Link
1111 N Beckley Ave
Dallas, TX 75203
(972) 788-4443
Visit Website
Build-your-own Bloody Mary bars can be very hit or miss, but Jonathon’s in Oak Cliff is no joke. If you’re picky about the way your Bloody Mary is poured, mix horseradish, tomato juice, olives, and all the other wacky fixins’ to your heart’s content.

6. Smoke

901 Fort Worth Ave
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 393-4141

Tim Byres is good at basically everything, and Bloody Marys are no exception. The award-winning Double Barrel Bloody Mary is the cream of the crop, made with Byres’ own tomato-chile base and garnished with a variety of housemade pickles.

7. FM Smoke House

Copy Link
660 Walnut Ridge Dr
Irving, TX 75038
(972) 751-6633
Visit Website
Pair your delicious smoked prime rib and brisket with a cocktail that packs just as much smoky flavor as the meats. FM Smokehouse’s Smoked Pepper Bloody Mary is chock-full of fresh ground smoked pepper and the bacon salt rim drives home the fact that you’re in barbecue heaven.

8. Lounge 31

87 Highland Park Vlg
Dallas, TX 75205
(214) 420-3903

There’s no swankier place to sip brunch cocktails than Highland Park’s Lounge 31, especially if you’re feeling a little adventurous. The Bangkok Bloody is garnished with shishito peppers and tempura shrimp, while the Southern Mary includes whole-grain mustard, pickled okra juice and Tabasco. The unusual Italian Caprese includes garnishes of mozzarella, tomato, basil and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. [Photo: Debbie E./Foursquare]
