Congrats once again to Playa Hermosa Oyster - they are your winner, earning MAJOR bragging rights to call themselves the Best Bloody Mary in the Los Angeles and Orange County, CA.

Our top 3 Bloody's as scored by the TBDE team: 

1. Playa Hermosa Oyster

3. Middle Bar Mary

Needless to say, the rankings were decided by a a sliver and at the end we had a tough time putting any of the bloodys down.
