Bloody Marys (at Night)
"I would personally like to see Bloody Marys disappear, but not altogether. I just don’t think anyone has business drinking those when it’s not in the weekend or in the morning. Bloody Marys should only see the light of day! I used to hate making dirty vodka martinis until I started bar managing, then I realized they make a lot of money for the bar." — Jared Schmidt (Absinthe Brasserie & Bar)
Blended Drinks

"It would be pretentious of me, I think, to point to any one cocktail and declare it unworthy of existence. I mean, everyone has different tastes; who am I to single one out? That said, blended drinks are the worst affront to polite society in all of the history of everything." — Chad Musick (Sip Tasting Room and Rooftop Lounge)
