About

Welcome to Bloody Mary Tour, fellow Bloody Mary connoisseurs and enthusiasts! Bloody Mary Tour is an all-inclusive website supporting the drinking, creating, and relishing of Bloody Marys.

Why focus on solely Bloody Marys you may ask?

Because they are a cornerstone of weekend brunch, Sunday football, long flights, music festivals, and, well, culture. They remain one of my favorite cocktails for their versatility, ability to be a self-sustaining meal, and history in both the United States and Europe. I offer to you my website, hosting an array of recipes, infusions, restaurant and bar recommendations, mixologist bios, entrepreneurial ventures, and an overall love for Bloody Marys.

Now, to tell you a bit about myself. My name is Jess and I currently live in Denver, CO, a place now evolving into a mecca for hip food and cocktails. I am originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, a city in which you all know hosts some of the best restaurants and bars in the country. I found my love for Bloody Marys during my freshman year of college at a bluegrass festival in Oregon–  I was HOOKED since then. I wanted to turn my passion into something palpable, so I created this site. I love the creativity you find in Bloody Marys– the ingredients, the infusions, the never-ending list of garnishes– and the people and places that perpetuate their existence.

I ask you to join with me in creating a community for the drink we all know and love, and to let us learn and grow from each other. I encourage interaction, whether in the form of comments or emails, and feedback, as it is crucial for the evolution of a community and website.

    • Thanks for sharing, William! The Skewdats seem like the next best thing in the Bloody Mary garnish world. Hopefully I can try them out on my own Bloody someday 😉

      Best,

    Hi Jessica,

    I love the concept behind this website. Even though I am not a fan of Bloody Marys (I had one bad experience haha), this makes me want to learn more about them. I love the way you write because your personality really comes through!

    I stumbled upon this site looking for good Bloody Mary bars in the wauconda, barrington, lake Zurich area. I teach 4th grade in LZ & my parents are from Ft. Collins. I also attended Saturday & Sunday of the Dead Concerts- so we have some things in common! I enjoyed your reviews & website! Thanks!

    • Hi Kenda– thank you for the kind words!! Unfortunately, I have been unable to explore the NW suburbs area in search of Bloodys as working full time doesn’t give me the chance to go home to N. Barrington as much as I would like to 😦 That’s awesome you were at the Dead! What a wonderful weekend in Chicago ❤ Hope you enjoy my site and hopefully one of these days I will have some IL reviews up for you
