Best Bloody Mary - 2007
You might not expect to find a kick-ass Bloody Mary at a mini-mall, but Mugsy's, an Upper Kirby staple, offers just that. Sandwiched between a tanning salon and a drive-through bank, Mugsy's serves its Bloody Mary as a perfect blend of spicy and hot, with a kick that will leave you gasping for a glass of water and feeling like you just ate a meal. Their homemade mix doesn't go overboard on the tomato juice, and the hint of Worcester sauce gives it a taste that many mixes regretfully forego. The scene tends to lean more toward the yuppie/post-workday set, but no matter your preference, you'll want to fork over the $5 for their perfect version of the manliest of manly drinks.
