Let's be honest — brunch wouldn't really be brunch without a bloody mary.
But if you really want to shake things up, Jazz at Kitano Hotel in New York offers a summery, less soupy alternative. Their Cilantini features muddled cherry tomatoes, dried chili pepper, lime, and (of course), cilantro, shaken with vodka, making it more along the lines of a bloody martini with a healthier dose of spice.
