Best Bloody Mary Contest

Who makes the area’s Best Bloody Mary?

Chilimania’s fifth annual Best Bloody Mary Contest will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 at Two Brothers Pub & Grill, 116 W. Fulton Street in downtown Edgerton. The contest follows the conclusion of the Chili Chase run/walk.

Come and enjoy the best Bloody Marys the Edgerton area has to offer, and you could be chosen to help decide the winners! Admission is FREE … but you must be age 21+ to register to be a judge. Judges will be chosen that morning using a lottery system.

How does this work?

Our goal is to have a FUN time and find out which local bar can create the BEST-LOOKING and BEST-TASTING Bloody Mary!

The competitors’ Bloody Mary mix will be judged and awarded in two categories:

  • Best Overall Taste: How pleasing it is to the taste buds.
  • Best Display: How good it looks aesthetically.

Judging Criteria

  • Best Overall Taste: A blind tasting of mixtures excluding any dressings, condiments, and/or garnishes.
  • Best Display: Visual judging of a 16-ounce display drink, with all the fixings included.


The winning bar will receive a “traveling trophy” plaque with their bar’s name inscribed, which they can display throughout the year. Chilimania will also bring the party to the establishment that wins Best Overall Taste (at a later date) to formally crown the Best Bloody Mary of 2018!
