The flavor profiles of a Bloody Mary can be as complex as the hangovers that spawn them. But after 12 local bars competed at the Las Vegas Bloody Mary Challenge, hosted by Hammer’s Grill & Bar, it was Johnny Mac’s Restaurant & Bar that took the title. Competitors were judged on presentation, flavor, consistency and alcohol content. The winner was presented in a pub glass coated with a super-fine salt-and-spice rim. Mainly savory, slightly briny and a touch sour, the winning entry offered the spicy capsaicin kick from its signature Suicide Sauce, and the freshness was nearly addictive. All this for a good cause, as proceeds benefited Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC. 842 S. Boulder Hwy., Henderson, 702-564-2121, JohnnyMacsWings.com.
