20 of the Best Bloody Marys in Oregon Worth Waking Up For (Updated 2019)

The morning Bloody Mary is almost a ritual sacrament. From low-key bars to fancy brunch pilgrimages, here in pilgrimages, here in Oregon we understand just how crucial the Bloody Mary cocktail is. So pay supplication to the tomato Gods with some of the best in Oregon.

According to most sources, the Bloody Mary made its first appearance at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, a legendary hangout during the 1920s and ’30s frequented by famous regulars including Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fernand Petiot claimed to have invented the Bloody Mary in 1921, well before any of the later claims, according to his grand-daughter. With the influx of vodka that arrived on the scene from Russians fleeing the Revolution and canned juices and other ingredients brought by American expats fleeing Prohibition, a new world of cocktails was discovered.

We asked our Facebook followers at That Oregon Life recently to suggest the best places to get a Bloody Mary, and below are the answers as well as some of our favorite locations all around Oregon. Since this article was originally written in 2017, a couple of these places have closed, so we have replaced them.
