The Kimchi Bloody Mary at Revel

Kimchi Bloody Mary at Revel ($8)
There’s nothing like it (pictured above). The house-made base has Korean chili paste and kimchi paste; it’s spiked with Vikingfjord vodka and garnished with a togarashi rim (e.g., dried seaweed and black sesame) and garnished with house-pickled long beans, a green olive and a lime wedge.

Pike Place Mary at Etta’s ($12)
Along with those crab cakes, order this locally sourced Bloody Mary: Prosser Farm pepper-infused vodka, house Bloody Mary mix and fresh horseradish, garnished with Bavarian Meats landjaeger and smoked Beecher’s cheese, and finished with a Pike Place pale ale beer back.

Ramos Gin Fizz at Witness Bar ($11)
This tall, frothy gin sipper is fragrant with lemon and lime, and frothy with egg whites. Think of it as an Orange Julius with benefits.

Grapefruit Cooler at Oddfellows ($7)
Feel free to order a mimosa; we’ll opt for this tart, fizzy refresher instead. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and Cocchi Aperitivo Americano are finished with sparkling French wine for a blushing, bubbly brunch beverage.

Cafe Amaro at Sun Liquor Distillery ($8)
While you’re brunching on French toast with lemon-honey butter and rum maple syrup, go ahead and sip a Cafe Amaro: freshly brewed Top Pot coffee with Fernet-Branca and hand-whipped Angostura cream, served with a twist of orange.
