    I'm looking for the best handmade Bloody Mary in Las Vegas.

    So far, my favorite has been at the lobby or "atrium" bar at Mirage when it was still the lounge for Kokomo's.

    I'm willing to pay up to $20.

    Last trip I wanted to try the bacon Bloody Mary at HHAG, but never got around to it. Despite that, I would prefer something "non-gimmicky".

    Have brunch at Morel's at The Venetian and watch the waiter scratch-make you a killer Bloody Mary at the drink cart he wheels up. He'll tweak it just the way you like it. Got a great one made when my instructions were "You know, it won't do me any good unless I can see through it!" :D

    Every cocktail that I've had at Wynn has been excellent so I'd bet they make a great Bloody Mary.

    If you go to Mon Ami Gabi, they have a bloody mary bar where you can make your own.

    We were playing there one day and the cocktail waitresses were non-existent. My honey was whining about it, so I went up to the bar at Encore and ordered one. Gave the bartender a $100 bill and he handed me back 4 $20s. This for a Bloody served in a (small) highball glass?
    There have got to be better ones in Vegas.

    It was actually at the Cafe Vettro. Here's a pic of their bloody mary offerings (as of Dec 12).

    I have had the Peppermill Bloody Mary and they were good. Lots of good garnish.

    airball - Café Vetto just became a MUST stop!

    I am a Bloody Mary aficionado and I make my own at home, BUT if I cannot for some reason this works great as a substitute.

    Buy yourself a bottle of Vodka from a liquor sore and a bottle of this and you will make some great Bloody Mary's.

    I can't believe with as many people that talk about Sullys at Ballys, their Bloodys haven't been mentioned. Only negative is it takes so darn long, lol

    Just out of curiosity, what is the sodium content and for how big a serving? They call it low sodium on the web site, but don't provide the details. So, if you have a bottle, how about taking a look and posting.

    My wife is very concerned about sodium intake. So at home she uses "no salt added" tomato juice. That has 25 mg in an 8 oz serving for her bloodys.

    Vacationing, she brings 5.5 oz cans of "low sodium" V8 which has 95 mg per can. She has them mix the bloody and then use her can of juice.

    Only two bartenders have refused to use her unopened can of juice. One at Gustufs Bar at Paris and another place in Portland, Maine. Other than those, every bartender is happy to cooperate.

    I'm not preaching, but almost every bar we go to, when she sees a bloody mix she asks to read the label for sodium. She has seen as high as 2,500 mg for a 4 oz serving.
