Mix up a Chesapeake Bay Bloody Mary

There are many origin stories for the bloody mary, the combination of tomato juice, vodka and sometimes outlandish garnishes. Regardless of where and when it started, it remains a popular daytime drink—said to ease hangovers and popular among boaters and brunchers.

This month, we join the staff at the dockside bar at Pusser’s Caribbean Grille in Annapolis for a quick tutorial on crafting a true Chesapeake Bay-style bloody.
