5 Bloody Marys Perfect for Mother's Day Brunch

Give your mother the gift of cocktail options as you prepare her special brunchWith Mother's Day fast approaching, a family brunch must be on the horizon. Whether that brunch is a breakfast in bed or an afternoon spent with your siblings in the kitchen making a special spread for your mom, brunch on Mother's Day is always a great idea.

As we've covered a ton of brunch favorites in the past - like eggs Benedict, grilled cheese, and pancakes - we're focusing on one cocktail that makes an appearance on most brunch menus due to its popularity and serious kick: the Bloody Mary.

How to Make the Perfect Bloody Mary

Sure, we'll settle for the always-loved classic, but mom deserves options, doesn't she? Renaissance Hotels, the Marriott lifestyle hotel brand, has partnered with Iron Chef Jose Garces (whose restaurant Mercat a la Planxa is located at the Blackstone Renaissance in Chicago) to create a Bloody Mary menu exclusively for Mother's Day.

Each drink is representative of a global city through its ingredients and garnishes. Basically, you'll never look at your spicy-tomato favorite the same way again.

"Inspired by a stroll from the famed Ferry Building (and its collection of top-notch food stands) to Fisherman's Wharf, where the fog rolls in off the bay, Fisherman's Blood brings the indelible flavors of the sea and the city's heritage as one of America's most exciting cocktail cities into your glass with house-infused horseradish-peppercorn vodka and our own briny Clamato juice." - Chef Jose Garces

"This former British colony now boasts the world's longest life expectancy - and the Bloody Pearl celebrates both, with London dry gin standing in for vodka and Chinese black vinegar (known to lower blood pressure and cholesterol) and toasted caraway seeds (a remedy for stomach maladies) for long life." - Chef Jose Garces

"Many cities define themselves by one legendary food, and perhaps none more so than the tastily garnished hot dogs I remember devouring while growing up on the city's northwest side. Chi-Dog Juice brings the sweet, spicy goodness of a real Chi-town dog to your glass - complete with a hearty garnish, of course." - Chef Jose Garces

"Miami is a melting pot of Latin and Caribbean cultures, a place where health-conscious ocean-side living coexists with riotous beachfront parties. Likewise, the Little Havana Verde is loaded with antioxidants - and a generous pour of cucumber vodka, as well." - Chef Jose Garces

"New Orleans is a food culture all its own, so 'Dat Eye Opener had to have a distinctive flavor. Replacing red tomato juice with green and liberally seasoning the cocktail with Creole spices make this Mary smooth as jazz - and worthy of The Big Easy." - Chef Jose Garces
