    beaniebee :  just no. I LOVE bloody Mary’s, and still think these are gross. I don’t want beer in my tomato juice. Here’s the thing:

    1) tomatoes based cocktails don’t have mass appeal. At best, maybe 50% of your guests even like bloody Mary’s  

    2) it’s really rare (ime) to actually get a good Bloody Mary. So I rarely drink them because most are shit. 

    3) of the minority of people who DO like bloody Mary’s, I’m sure the percentage of them that like these is even fewer (like me)

    4) even of the people who like and order bloody Mary’s and like miacheladas, it’s a very context-sensitive drink. I would never order a bloody at a wedding. It’s just out of place. 

    5) do you really want to worry about spilling tomato juice on your dress…?

    I think you def need to consider your group rather than these answers. I’m from southern california and they are loved here (of course not everyone but the majority I can say yes). I personally love them and would be super excited to have them at a wedding as they arent everywhere. 

    That being said when I visit back east and I have asked for one no one knows what they are.

    i googled it too, US bee. 


    is a signature drink your only drink?  will there be other alcohol available?

    since you and Fiance love it, you should have it there.  but what about those that don’t drink beer?

    i don’t like that spicy, so i would hope something else would be available.

    I think a Moscow Mule is more appropriate and was actually going to be my suggestion in my first post as a good alternative – it’s sort of in the same vein.  They aren’t my favorite, but I’ll have it now and again.  I find them more refreshing at least and I know a lot of my friends like them.  Tomato juice just has a thicker texture no matter how strained or diluted it is – I don’t want to feel like I’m chewing my liquor.  That’s what puts me off them as a general party drink.  If you were doing brunch and serving them I’d totally try it with my meal as a bloody mary alternative – but they just aren’t the kind of thing I would be drinking mingling at a cocktail party or evening reception (I’m not sure if you ever clarified what time of day your wedding is taking place).

    I had to google it. It doesn’t seem to be to everyone’s tastes! If you know your guests will like it, go for it! But if you’re not sure, I would opt for something more neutral, just so that everyone has something they like.

    I’d want to know what’s on the food menu to see if it actually goes well together, but in general I’d say yes!! love me some micheladas!
