Best Local Bloody Mary

Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery

Readers' Picks

Self-proclaimed "world's greatest secret agent" Sterling Archer, from the FX series Archer, doesn't hold much sacred. Not love, not money, not friendship. But booze is a different story. He even has a prayer to the patron saint of morning eye-openers, which he invokes at the hint of a hangover: "Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen." Best of Boise voters sang their own praises of the nutritious, delicious, socially accepted day-drinking staple--specifically as it's served at Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery. With three brunch-time varieties--the classic, with Bardenay vodka, tomato juice and spices; the Spicy Bloody Mary, with horseradish, garlic and three types of pepper; and the Basil Bloody Mary, with fresh sweet basil--if you still feel like a dog after sucking one of those babies down, you might rethink a few things.
