Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar

I’m a big believer in breakfast food. While others may hate the term “brunch”, you can invite me anytime. Dishes full of egg dishes, fruit plates, warm biscuits, meats and sweets all in one meal and you have an event I would never say no to.

A few weeks ago, Mott’s sent over some of their new Garden Blend juice. Naturally, I promptly set up a Bloody Mary bar at the next get-together and had people rate them.
