The Bohemian Cafe, 2 W. Stone Ave., Greenville | Speaking of giving you the power, this spot has a Bloody Mary bar every Saturday + Sunday from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. You can choose from 30 hot sauces, fresh fruit, and pickled veggies + pick your base spirit. Whiskey Bloody Mary anyone?

Smoke on the Water, 1 Augusta St., Ste. 202, Greenville | Featuring another Bloody Mary bar, you can make your own from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Choose between the traditional Bloody Mary, or a smoked Bloody Mary with the option to add on grilled shrimp, smoked sausage, or a smoked chicken wing.

The Farehouse, 50 Mill St., PW3151, Taylors | This Bloody Mary features house-infused vodka from Farehouse, and various seasonal accouterments. City Editor Stephanie couldn’t wait to use that word in this story.

Core 450, 450 Cherokee Valley Way, Travelers Rest | We could probably count the Land + Sea Bloody Mary as a meal, since it comes with steak, crab legs, and shrimp. We don’t mind drinking our dinner.

Like we said Greenville, these were voted on by you. If you don’t see your favorite Bloody Mary listed, let us know.
