Bloody Mary’s; the glorious hair-of-the-dog libation that helps get you goin’ in the morning. After a late night out on the town, a Bloody Mary might be exactly what you need to kick-start your day. The Best of Breck Team ventured around the county and did some “research” on where to get the best hangover cure in a glass in Summit County. We turned to our own taste buds and reached out to locals so we could give you the inside scoop. Here’s who made the cut (not in any particular order):
GC8 Bloody – Three Olives Vodka with pickle, pepperoncini, olive and bacon skewer – $10
Robbie’s is a brand new, locally owned slopeside bistro, with unparalleled views. Located right at the base of Peak 8 within the Grand Colorado, Robbie’s is the new hot spot to grab a drink après skiing. We checked out their bloody as advised by some locals, and were blown away. It was seriously good; the perfect mix of vodka and tomato juice, perfect spice, and topped with BACON. Yeah, bacon.
Bacon Bloody – Bacon infused vodka, topped with a spear pickle, pepperoncini, olive and a strip of bacon – $10
The Bacon Bloody at 6th Alley has been named the “Best Bloody Mary in Summit County, Colorado”. When you try it, you’ll see why. Not only does it come with a delicious strip of bacon on top, but they also use bacon-infused vodka! Bacon makes everything better. They are so good, that Abasin even has a lift ticket deal that includes a voucher for their famous bloody. Now that’s something we can get behind.
Bloody Mary – Vodka and a house-made bloody mix, with olives, bacon, pickle, celery, okra, green onion, jalapenos, tomato, banana peppers, onion ring or chicken wing, and a little green army man. -$12
Angel’s Hollow is a local’s favorite and has a Bloody Mary that challenges them all. This drink is seriously stacked. There’s pretty much everything except the kitchen sink in this drink. It has to be seen to be believed. Watch out; this one is SPICY!
The Usual Suspects – Pick your house infused vodka: pickle or jalapeno. Then pick your mix: Zing Zang or Motherlode Provisions. Served with a surprise garnish! -$12
The Ultimate Bloody Mary – 32oz of the Usual Suspect with an extra gluttonous garnish of fun! -$20
MLT is known for their house infused booze, so of course, you get an infused vodka with your bloody. They garnish the Usual Suspect with a strip of bacon, olives, pepperoncini and olives. The Ultimate Bloody gets a little crazy. First of all, 32oz of booze. 32. OUNCES. Sign us up. Second of all, they garnish that baby with peppered bacon, a spam fry, and an entire chicken tender! Really reinforcing the whole ‘meal in a glass’ concept.
Bloody Mary – Breckenridge Vodka or Breckenridge Vodka Chili Chile, with pickle, celery, jalapeno, pepperoncini, olive, lemon, and lime. Served in a mason jar. -$9
If you’ve never been to the Crown, definitely check it out. It’s a cute little coffee shop right in the heart of Breck that has delicious breakfast, lunch, coffee and BOOZE! You can get all these delicious boozy breakfast drinks early in the morning because it’s a coffee shop so they’re open earlier than most places. They keep it local and use vodka from Breckenridge Distillery as well as 9600 Bloody Mary Mix. Then they basically top it off with a salad. Sold.
So next time you’re in Breck and stay out a little too late, head to one of these spots in Summit County for a delicious hangover cure. Remember, you can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning!
