Bloody Marys at Cafe Madison

Bloody Mary at Cafe MadisonOK, we're not Bloody Mary connoisseurs or anything, but we know what we like. And we like the Bloody Marys at Cafe Madison.

Don't ask the bartenders. They won't share the secret to this tomatoey/peppery concoction. They will tell you they start with a basic Bloody Mary mix, but then they have a little fun with it.

What we like most about this particular tomatoey/peppery concoction is the consistency. It's thicker than your typical Bloody Mary, with just the right amount of horseradish, pepper, lemon and, of course, vodka. Not too spicy -- but spicy enough.

Sip one on a Sunday morning and you may find yourself in some powerful company. We're not naming names, but apparently at least one very tan Albany celeb is a fan.

I have not had the bloody marys at Cafe Madison, but I would be amazed if anyone could beat the bloody marys at DeJohn's and Justin's.

You can't beat Cafe Madison. Great drinks, great food...worth the wait, which happens just because it's so darn good!
