If you love bloody marys, (and even if you don't) you'll want to try the Michelada. Think of this cocktail as a less intense version of the classic tomato-based brunch drink. You can control the amount of spice that goes into your cocktail, being as heavy-handed (or not) with the hot sauce as you'd like. Full of savory spices and flavors, the Michelada will be your new favorite brunch cocktail.
