We recently visited the Emerald City for the first time ever, so we called up our friend the Drunken Tomato and asked her for her expert recommendations. We knew we were only here for a short stay and wanted to know where we HAD to go. If we could only have one Bloody Mary in Seattle, we asked, where should we go?
Sam’s Tavern is was.
We came here solely for the Bloody Mary, but could only make it around 11pm on a Saturday night. Yep, they were still serving it despite the large crowd and booming music. We were served fast and the bartender didn’t even blink an eye when we ordered it. (Most bartenders give you the “We’re out of mix” line at that time of night, even though you know they’re stocked up for Sunday Brunch.)
Fixin’s: Cheese, olive, cocktail weenie, cherry tomato, lime, pearl onion, celery, and a cheeseburger slider complete with lettuce, onion, tomato and sauce.
Sam’s Bacon Vodka Bloody Mary Masterpiece is not all for show. The mix itself has a nice smoky, spiciness and was very smooth. The salted rim is an added bonus.
We absolutely LOVED the garnish. The slider was reminiscent of a Big Mac or a Whopper and the cheese hunk was generous. Lots of snacking while sipping–a great combination!
Thanks so much for the recommendation, Shelley! We wish we could have connected and went out for bloodies together!
