This Bloody Mary made my day, so I'm going to call it a night, write my review tomorrow, and dream about the yummy goodness this Bloody Mary provided in the meantime. 

Check back for a more in depth review, but trust me, if your hankering for a damn good Bloody Mary...get your ass over to RiverView right now before the cute waitress Jamie that served up this delicious concoction leaves for the evening!

UPDATE:  Getting back to the review of the best Bloody Mary I've found since starting my quest....

We arrived at Riverview after getting mixed results on the earlier two attempts at other establishments.  Upon walking in the doors, we immediately were hit with the pleasant aroma of food being served from the restaurant area to the right, but instead took a left into the bar for some liquid refreshments.  

After noticing the screened-in porch out front was empty, we gave the cute bartender our drink order, and said we would be drinking them outside.  While she quickly poured my sister a beer & made my cousin a Mai Tai (which after taking a swig was found pretty tasty in itself) the bartender informed us to go ahead and sit out front, because she didn't want us to have to stand there while she took the time to create the Bloody Mary.  I took this as a good sign.

A few minutes later the Bloody Mary was delivered to the table, and from the looks of it, I knew I was in store for a much better experience then the "Hawaiian Punch" looking thing I had got from the bar down the road.  Turns out this was definitely the case...

Coming served with 4 pickle medallions, 2 olives, lime wedge, a pepperoncini & rimmed with celery salt, I took a hearty swig.  My response was "That's pretty damn good!"  I took another drink to make sure I wasn't just compensating for the last debacle, and it tasted even better then the first.  It indeed was VERY good.

With visible spices seen in the thick tomato juice, it gave each drink the perfect "kick" - and kept leaving my mouth wanting more.  There isn't much more that I can say except that this was by far the best tasting bloody mary I've had since I started this blog, and for five bucks - can't think of a better bargain if your in the mood for some Bloody Mary goodness.
