Well, keep the machine running, of course. And what better than a Bloody Mary, the classic brunch beverage that's full of nutrients, spices, and other restorative properties. Like vodka, obviously. Here's a map to some of the best bloody marys around town, a helpful thing to know when the murkiness of the night before is just clearing up.

The Bloody Mary at this classic drinking den in Downtown has a house-made mix that uses pickle juice, a great way to get over a hangover. Full of spice (they do use meat rub spice from the kitchen) and the famous house made pickle, they're served only on the weekends until 6 p.m.

2. The Tasting Kitchen

The brunch at Venice's The Tasting Kitchen features a fantastic bloody mary to go along with chef Casey Lane's fare. Made with potato vodka, juice, and Worchestshire sauce, the simple house version does the trick. But for something special, try the 1920's bloody mary, which gets a spike of Tabasco.

2500 Riverside Dr
Los Angeles, CA 90039
(323) 665-0211

The bloody marys are simple, classic, strong, and spicy. Just what one needs after a long night of drinking, or perhaps something to get the weekend started. Yelpers give high marks to the version at this comfy spot in Silver Lake.

6. Mess Hall

4500 Los Feliz Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Comically called Get That Girl a First Aid Kit, the bloody mary variant at this Los Feliz restaurant uses a house-made mix and a garlic & shallot infused vodka. It's the best thing to patch up the night before.[Photo: Escapist]

7. The Village Idiot

7383 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046
(323) 655-3331

The bloody marys at this popular Melrose gastropub are a little divisive, perhaps because of the heavy use of thick freshly grated horseradish, which gives it a very spicy kick. Throw in the convivial ambiance and this might be the idea place to nurse a hangover.[Photo: Bun Boy]

Jason Travi has one of the best brunches in town, and the bloody mary doesn't let up. Bartender Dino Balocchi makes one for a mere $5 that he called the Bloody Larry, which gets a nice kick from Old Bay spice.

9. Little Dom's

For a nice balanced bloody mary, try the one at this Los Feliz Italian-American restaurant, where the drink is spicy, tangy, and has just the right amount of alcohol to treat a hangover.[Photo: EatHeavy]

10. FIG Santa Monica

Santa Monica, CA 90401
(310) 576-7777
Visit Website

The FIG Mary uses a house recipe of bloody mary mix and a dose of Karlsson's Vodka, considered by many to be one of the best tasting vodkas (if that is a thing) out there. Running $12, it's the ideal thing to pair with chef Ray Garcia's market-driven comfort cooking.[Photo: Drunken Tomato]

11. Trattoria Neapolis

Copy Link
336 S. Lake Ave.
Pasadena, CA 91106
(626) 792-3000
Visit Website

The Neapolis Bloody Mary starts with tomato juice, then gets spices and pickled vegetables before a topping a basil, for just the right Italian slant to this brunch classic. And of course, there's that infamous Pizza Cocktail that uses tomato water, vodka, ghost pepper, and muddled basil for a drinkable pizza.

12. Cecconi's

8764 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90069
