Sounds like lots of places have good house mixes. Where can I find the best ones?

        Was going to be my vote too, but you beat me to the punch... or to the Bloody Mary, as the case might be. Count me as a second rec.

        Thinking long and hard, I think that those have been the best, even considering times that I really, really needed one.

        The bloody mary at Stanley is quite tasty

          Now, that is one that I have not had. All else at Stanley was great, so I would not be surprised that they do a very good Bloody Mary. Gotta' try it next time, so long as it's before I declare "wine-thirty."

          Thanks,

          Just back from New Orleans this weekend. We had GREAT bloody mary's at a bar called Johnny's (1/2 block towards Bourbon from Rouse's) They were so good on Saturday morning, we returned on Sunday!
          Bloody Mary's are usually not my first choice, but these were spectacular!

            Oh, I know Johnny's but have never had their Bloody Marys. Guess that it's getting to be time, where I explore that drink, instead of trying to find a "nice little breakfast Chardonnay... "

            Thanks,

            One of my new favorites is at Luke, John Besh's restaurant. Great bar too. (and the food is outstanding, if you are interested).

              Oh, and Pat O'Brien's has a pretty good bloody too. Yes, it is out of a bottle, but it is their mix. I think you'll find that most are made from a mix, or based on a mix.
