Creating your own bloody mary bar at home is far easier than it sounds! Take help from your favorite market and buy store-bought garnishes -- shrimp! bacon! olives! -- to take your bloody marys from drab to fab with minimal effort. Totally acceptable to make a double batch. DIY bloody mary bars are the perfect brunch treat!
