Is there such a thing as an overrated bloody mary? We don't think so, but we want to know where we can get a top-notch, vodka-fueled beverage early in the morning. Last year, we named the bloody mary at the Famous Bar (5213 Chippewa; 314-832-2211) the best in town -- it's got bacon-infused vodka and a quail egg as a garnish. Rooster, Cafe Eau and Barrister's are other favorites.

Is there anyone doing something super crazy? What about a bloody mary that proves you can't improve on the traditional recipe? Let us know your nominations in the comments and we'll take it to a vote next week. We may just do a little, ahem, research ourselves.
