Batched Bloody Marys

Batched Bloody Marys

I love Bloody Marys but I know it’s not everyone’s bag. I much prefer them to mimosas, which again, I know is not typical. That being said, I think a spicy (two types of spice, thank you horseradish and hot sauce), boozy Bloody Mary is the ideal brunch cocktail, early tailgate cocktail, or my...
