Best Bloody Mary

Big Muddy Pub

There is something better than a bloody mary on a Sunday: a bloody-mary bar. The one at Big Muddy Pub is worth the drive to downtown Alton, Illinois, we promise. You don't have to worry about lame pours when you're the one doing the pouring. During the week, Big Muddy is a neighborhood joint, but no white-linen brunch spot can beat the bloody mary bar. From 2 to 8 p.m., choose from 30 different vodkas including top shelf and flavored, five mixers and more than twenty garnishes like pickled asparagus, dill pickle, peppers and even okra. The power to make so many different bloody marys is mind-boggling. Our only problem is that it's only available on Sundays. We need it all weekend. Or every day, really.
