Bloody Mary's are without a doubt one of my favorite drinks to order whether it be with breakfast, lunch or dinner. I always like to try a restaurant's Bloody Mary when I go to a new restaurant.

I was reading online and saw someone writing about having a Bloody Mary with Bourbon instead of Vodka. Has anyone tried this? I'm a big fan of bourbon, but I'm always too nervous to get one when I'm out and I don't have a bottle of any at home.

I like Bourbon, and I like Bloody Marys, but that doesn't sound like a good combination.

There are thousand of different types of drinks,
and thousands of different taste buds among people.

If we all had the same likes there would only be one kind of drink.

Your dislikes may be their likes.

The Bloody Mary cocktail, consisting of Vodka and Tomato juice was invented in the 1920s as a hangover chaser to drink in the morning. All the garnishes and condiments came later.

Since then it has, of course, become very popular, with an infinite number of ingredients added by various bartenders to try to make theirs unique. Part of that restless meddling with the ingredients has included changing out the vodka for some other liquor... gin, tequila, rum, sake, absinthe, even beer. I think most could be characterized as a novelty drink, not as a serious contender for the title.

In some ways I think the "stretch" version is to make a Bloody Mary with whiskey, such as Irish, Canadian, or Bourbon, because the sweet caramel flavor note of whiskey is not an easy match for the acidic base of the savory tomato juice. It's not a favorite of mine. But to each his own, and if you like it, good on ya!

Some places in my hood 'infuse' the vodka with peppers, garlic, onions, eggplants etc.

I would likely gag if this was done to bourbon.

Is this brought to us by those who mix scotch with Dr. Pepper....(an old weed enthusiast roommate).

I like a martini, but made with merlot. No vermouth, I use agave syrup. No olive, I use a caper.

But it's a martini.

Oy.
