Happy Marys

Bloody Marys on Sunday mornings are the best. Even better, though, are Bloody Marys at Happy Gillis after the CCVI Trolley Run. We walked the four mile-route with 10,400 other supporters, then cheered the kiddos in the fun run. Lunch was in order, so we headed to Happy Gillis for biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon and Bloody Marys—one traditional vodka, one with a shot of Patrón Silver. According to Mittie Hellmich’s Ultimate Bar Book, the Bloody Mary became popular in the 1930s but was pretty bland until either New Yorkers or Hemmingway (stories vary, so who knows?) demanded more of a kick. Either way, mine made me very happy.
