Before Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, I wasn’t a big fan of Bloody Marys. I just am not a fan of tomato-ey things in general. But after tasting what was perhaps the best Bloody Mary ever (the Mary fans I was with at Harry’s where the cocktail was invented can back me up), I’ve seen the light. So when I got wind of Fig Santa Monica‘s new Bloody Mary brunch cocktail menu, created by Chef Ray Garcia, I admit that I did a little happy dance.

He created some crazy versions of everyone’s favorite hangover cure. Not only does it offer the popular Bacon Mary made with heirloom tomato, bacon-infused True Organic Gin and a bacon-salt rim but meat lovers might get a kick out of the Foie Mary with foie gras and Belvedere Vodka.

Other unique Marys:

  • Brasilian Mary: Leblon Cachaca, Tomato-Carrot Juice, Passionfruit
  • Green Mary: Cucumber, Dill, Serrano Chili, Grappa
  • Tomato-Watermelon Mary: Organic Tomatoes, Juiced Watermelon, Casa Noble Silver Tequila
  • Yellow Mary: Luksusowa Vodka Yellow Tomato, Mint

Or if you’d rather create a Mary with your favorite spirit, you can. Do it with bourbon for a Brown Mary, rum for a Bloody Pirate or gin for a Bloody Margaret. Weirdos (said affectionately of course) can do absinthe (Bloody Fairy) or booze free (Bloody Shame).

Lucky for you, the Promenade and beach, great places to spend sobering up, are just within stumbling distance of the restaurant! The Bloody Mary menu is only available during Sunday brunch.
