bone broth bloody mary 1 After the Savannah Marathon we went out for lunch at a The Public, and had, for many reasons including the fact that I had just finished running 26.2 miles, one of the best meals ever. I spent the better part of the marathon fantasizing about the hamburger I was going to eat and it absolutely stood up to muster; it was delicious. But the start of the show, truly, was the Bloody Mary. When I ordered it the waiter asked me "you're not a vegetarian, are you?" which is probably the best question I've ever been asked after ordering a cocktail. I knew in that moment that I was going to have a love thing with this Bloody Mary, and I was right.

They start their cocktail with a hearty beef stock and it makes all the difference. This Bloody Mary made enough of a mark on me that I decided to try it at home, so after putting together a big pot of bone broth I whipped up a batch of hearty, rich, tangy, filling Bloody Marys. Perfect for brunch. Perfect for the back porch. Perfect for after a marathon. Perfect for after a nap.
