About The Drunken Tomato
The Drunken Tomato started with a throbbing hangover, a stiff cocktail and a bloody mary dream. Launched in 2011 from a 450 square foot apartment in lower Manhattan, I've brought together a community of fun-loving, day-drinking, brunch-going friends to explore boozy beverages from around the world. I drink bloody marys. I write about them. I post my bloody mary musings for all to see.
In 2015, I expanded The Drunken Tomato Shop to create an online marketplace for brunch related swag. With beef straws in hand, I roam the great bloody mary beyond uncovering locally made mixes, hand-jarred pickles, bangin' brunch tees and more. Each shop product is precisely chosen with the bloody mary enthusiast in mind.
About Shelley Buchanan
I am a fearless adventurer with a liver of steel and an affection for vodka. Author of three bloody mary city guides, Founder of The Drunken Tomato, and celebrity judge at numerous bloody mary festivals, I travel the world brunching, writing and boozing with fellow bloody mary enthusiasts. I am sassy. I am daring. I am a vodka soaked disco ball spreading boozy droplets of bloody mary love to the masses.
Inside The Drunken Tomato NYC
As book number four in The Drunken Tomato book series, NYC maintains a special place in my heart. It's the city where The Drunken Tomato was founded, the first place I truly called home and starting point for my bloody mary adventure. With all this in mind, I'm celebrating the amazing local beverage community in every facet of my book production.
Here's what's inside:
- Over 50 reviews of NYC's best bloody marys
- 10 NYC inspired bloody mary and garnish recipes
- Neighborhood maps guiding you toward your next day drink
- Spotlights on local makers, including bottled bloody mary mixes and locally produced garnishes
- Full color photos featuring everything from kimchi-filled crimson cocktails to maple syrup drenched bacon bloody marys
I will also be featuring some of my beloved Kickstarter backers in special recipes, a dedicated Kickstarter thank you page and even a formal dedication of the entire book! Check out the great rewards below!

Risks and challenges
As my fourth published book, I feel fully capable of publishing The Drunken Tomato NYC on time and in beautiful condition. I have already performed 90% of the research and photography. Yes, that entails me drinking over 50 NYC bloody marys in a very short period of time! All I need is you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
