The Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida has a Bloody Mary bar that really levels up the popular brunch cocktail. While many establishments offer the ability to customize your Bloody Mary with the addition of garnishes, The Catch of the Pelican gives guests 48,000 possible combinations of ingredients. Each drink will set you back $14, but if you want to try just a few of the thousands of possible combinations, get the bottomless option for $35.
For liquor, you have your choice of either vodka or tequila, which is combined with red or green homemade mix. For extra flavor, coat the rim of your glass in one of eight of house-made salts or spice mixes, such as orange salt, Peruvian chile citrus salt, gochujang salt, white truffle or Old Bay.
Here’s a picture of a Bloody Mary creation from the hotel’s Instagram:
If you like your Bloody Marys extra spicy, you have your choice of 20 hot sauces, including Crystal Hot Sauce, Louisiana Hot Sauce, El Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce and Tabasco Green Jalapeño Sauce.
When it comes to toppings, you may not even need to order an entree. Fill your skewer with shrimp, empanadas, bacon, fried ravioli, watermelon spears, egg rolls and jalapeño poppers, just to name a few possibilities. There are 75 weekly toppings in all.
Check some of these options in this photo posted to Instagram by the hotel:
The Catch of the Pelican encourages guests to use the hashtags #grandebrunch and #lifeisgrande on social media to get a chance to win brunch for four.
A quick search of those tags on Instagram reveals some pretty amazing creations. Check out what user @willowhollow put together:
Whoa! She’s going to have to indulge in a mini feast before she can even get to the drink.

Instagrammer @just.take.a.dip declared that the Bloody Mary bar had her “shook”:
If you want to try one — or a few! — out for yourself, brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at The Catch of the Pelican.
Sounds like an amazing way to start a weekend day, doesn’t it?
