Chicago's Best Bloody Marys (PHOTOS)

Chicagoans are devoutly loyal to their favorite Sunday brunches, and will often wait in long lines just to ease their hangovers with a plate of eggs benedict, and that essential pre-noon drink, the Bloody Mary. While brunchers will find this classic cocktail readily available at eateries throughout the city, not all are created equal. So we undertook the arduous task of trekking around, scrutinizing ingredient lists and tasting Bloody after Bloody, in order to name what we think of as Chicago's best.

Greg Tripp, who mans Tweet's bar, goes for perfection when it comes to crafting Bloody Marys. He'll ask you how spicy you want your cocktail, and rumor has it he can spice it up so severely that it will make you cry. We played it safe and ordered a heat level of 8 for our Ecstasy Bloody Mary, which had a good amount of heat, but was far from tear-inducing. We were, however, impressed with the unique blend of wasabi, Sriracha and habanero.
