The 8 Best Places for a Bloody Mary in Massachusetts!

Whether you like them extra spicy or complemented by bacon (yes, bacon), Bloody Marys are truly dynamic drinks. And at these Massachusetts restaurants and bars, they serve up a mean cocktail. Here are our favorites. 

Cask ‘n Flagon, Boston and Marshfield, MA

Ask about the Bloody Mary Workshop at Cask ‘n Flagon. The add-ons to the classic drink include everything from smoked salt to mini pork sliders. Not a daily occurrence, the regular Bloody Marys are exceptional, too. The house mix is a closely kept secret and part of what makes the drinks so good.

Brass Union, Somerville, MA

The Bloody Marys at Brass Union are made from homemade tomato juice. The tomatoes are roasted before being pureed and have a smoked flavor which lends itself to the flavor of the drinks. Delicious any time of day, they’re especially popular at brunch.

Bostonia Public House, Boston, MA

Some of the Bloody Marys at Bostonia Public House are akin to a meal. For $18, patrons receive a traditional, albeit large, Bloody Mary, as well as access to their elaborate garnish table. Be sure to try their ribs! 

The Gill Tavern, Gill, MA

Possibly one of the healthier Bloody Marys around, those served at the Gill Tavern start with tomato juice squeezed from their home grown tomatoes. The recipe is classic, but there’s something about a fresh tomato—especially after a long New England winter.

Russell House Tavern, Cambridge, MA

The basil-infused vodka featured in the Maria Basilico at Russell House Tavern gives the classic Bloody Mary a whole new flavor. Italian-inspired, it really switches up the drink. Don’t worry, they serve the classic recipe, too, which is equally as tasty.

Tryst, Arlington, MA

The habanero-infused vodka in the Tryst Bloody Mary isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, it most definitely requires a food accompaniment to stave off some of the heat. Tryst serves up an excellent brunch, too, so patrons are in luck. Can’t take the heat? Don’t worry. They’ll make you up a classic Bloody Mary instead.

The Biltmore Bar & Grille, Newton, MA

Build your own Bloody Mary when you visit the Biltmore Bar & Grille for Sunday brunch. Start with your vodka and mixer, and then add on skewer selections to your heart’s desire.

Michael’s Harborside, Newburyport, MA

Michael’s Harborside features a “Design Your Own Bloody Mary” menu. Check off the kind of vodka you want in your drink, and then select your garnishes, rim, mixers, and spice. The choices are endless and the result is a delicious Bloody Mary you came up with yourself.
