A Friend With Boozy Benefits

Simon Burgess is the enthusiastic brain behind new start-up Your Buddy Mary - which is to hold events, pop-ups and experiences all centred around the somewhat old-fashioned 'Bloody Mary' cocktail - in London and Manchester.

Simon says he wants to revolutionise the little red number in a series of exciting twists: "A Bloody Mary can be whatever you want it be - and enjoyed with friends at an event like today's, that's exactly what I want to offer people."

Lovin were caught red-handed at yesterday's launch event among a crowd of thirsty patrons, and the Bloody Marys did not disappoint...

In the beginning

Out came a flute boasting a Bloody Mary inspired palate-cleanser plus a series of tasters of the original Your Buddy Mary Bloody Mary.

In Breakfast Pizza We Crust

We've all been there. 

Hangover usually means late-night pizza fest or next-morning greasy fry-up. Your Buddy Mary combines the two with an offering of English breakfast IN a pizza.

Pipping his venture as the ultimate hangover cure, Simon says he wanted to create a daytime event that would make his customers feel amazing and blast that inevitable sore head from Friday night's 'out out' antics but without being diet-centric. Needless to say, dishes are carb-heavy and oozy (so stick your fat pants on folks.)
