In honor of Sunday being our favorite day to drink Bloody Mary's. . .
A few weeks ago, I was in San Francisco visiting my lovely friend, Sarah. While soaking in the afternoon sun, we decided what could possibly be better than a Bloody Mary??
And, we were in the perfect neighborhood to do so: The Mission. Not to mention, José was nice enough to let me borrow his GQ magazine (the one with Seth Rogan gracing the cover) to read on my long flight -- my favorite article being The 20 Best Cocktails In America where an intriguing little San Francisco bar, Elixir's, Bloody Mary (aka "The Bloody Elixir") placed #3.
So, of course, we make our way over to The Elixir Saloon to see what all the fuss is about. And, we cannot even express the joy we were overcome with upon learning that there was a "make your own" Bloody Mary Buffet of sorts. . .
The guy below clearly was enjoying himself (perhaps because he had one too many Bloody Mary's) and convinced me to take this photo of him:
"Drink More Think Less"Immediately, we dove into the Bloody Mary buffet, following the recipe provided for The Bloody Elixir, which of course I added (at least) three times more Tabasco sauce to. One word: AMAZING.

Sarah was like, "okay, these Bloody Mary's are pretty much amazing but we NEED to go right down the street to Zeitgeist for a little comparison." So that we did :) Zeitgeist kind of reminded me of Garage Bar but with more of a hipster vibe -- we hung out on the patio, where the people watching was just incredible. And, I must say that their Bloody Mary was absolutely fantastic (the green olives and lemon were a very nice touch), yet ultimately the Elixir vs. Zeitgeist drink-off was a complete draw*
Miss Sarah and Miss MaryFor now, we hope you are enjoying your Sunday and perhaps a Bloody Mary or two :)
