Ah, the Bloody Mary. One doesn't have to be looking for hair of the dog, but the cushioned bartop and dim lighting of the Alibi will aid recovery from the worst debauchery. It's an anytime drink, honestly. You crave the salt on a sweaty summer day. You crave the rich spice on a cold winter evening. The crimson hued cocktail comes in many forms — 13 alone at the Alibi. But the beauty of the Alibi's Bloody Mary isn't just in its many varieties, but in its simplicity. The tomato stock is rich and piquant — easily perked up by the addition of the Alibi Mary's horseradish or the celery salt-rimmed glass of Mary's Pucker. You can even get an oyster. Picking your preferred alcohol decides your garnish — or maybe vice-versa — and tenders at the 'Bi don't try to Portland it up by putting a subway sandwich on top of your glass. Cheers!
