Bloody Mary Judge for a Day

What we’ll do: Join fellow bloody mary enthusiasts as we venture through three of Seattle’s best bloody marys. From mezcal spiked marys to burger garnishes, we’ll learn how to judge these boozy day-time cocktails based on taste, presentation, and creativity. You'll fill out your own score sheets, compare notes with fellow guests, and receive a certificate designating you as an official Drunken Tomato expert.

Where we’ll be: We begin with an adventurous take on the bloody mary featuring non-traditional spirits. Next, we hit another Capitol Hill bar for a classic rendition of this boozy tomato cocktail. Finally, we will track down a secret menu item for only those in the know - the infamous Bakon Bloody Mary Masterpiece.
