I am a Bloody Mary Addict from Melbourne Australia. I decided to start BMM as a side project to my day job as a designer. I have always been fond of a good Bloody Mary (regardless of hangover status or time of day) and since relocating to Melbourne a year ago I noticed that I had tried more than a few... and a few really really good ones, which I thought I ought to share.
How I rate
Although this topic is debatable.. I rate 3 basic areas to give a total score out of 5. Taste, Venue and Garnish. I believe these factors all contribute to whether I would come back to a place or tell my friends about; excellence and consistency in all areas. The key is in the balance of the flavors in the drink. It needs the right proportions of spice, sweetness, sharpness and sourness with a really good clean vodka to not take away from anything. A lot of places try too hard or not hard enough, and mess that balance up.

Long live the Bloody Mary.
Outstanding, consistently. Great venue and Great tasting Bloody Marys on multiple occasions.
Excellent taste and venue. Would drink / have drank again. BM game is strong. Not quite a five due to glass size or price point.
Great classic taste and great venue - Would definitely come back and drink again..
Classic taste, good venue. Would drink again if I was in the area maybe.
Average taste and venue, nothing special, Would drink it again, but wouldn't go out of my way to go there.
Meh. Not great. Poor service/venue. Very average BM. No love.
