The Naples Grande Beach Resort, a stunning hotel located smack on the sands of Naples Beach, is already a worthy vacation destination thanks to its many luxurious amenities. Those luxuries include beach and poolside cabanas, a fully equipped gym, and a spa sanctuary offering up almost any bodywork service you’d ever need. However, its greatest amenity may be its unrivaled brunch service. Namely, its Bloody Mary Bar that features a whopping 48,000 possible combinations of drink ingredients.

Inside The Catch of The Pelican, guests are invited to become their own mixologists at the build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. The bar comes with eight homemade glass rim choices including orange salt, Peruvian chile citrus salt, dill sea, white truffle, Old Bay, Sriracha salt, smoked salt, and gochujang salt.

For spirits, guests can mix in either vodka or tequila with either homemade or green Bloody Mary mix.

For toppings, the bar comes with 75 different food choices to skewer including jalapeno poppers, egg rolls, empanadas, mozzarella sticks, bacon, and fried ravioli. Those hot items can be paired with cold items for a refreshing feeling including prosciutto, watermelon spears, cantaloupe spears, and baby corn. But wait, there’s more.

Guests at the Bloody Mary Bar can also toss in a little more sauce for a bit of a kick including Crystal Hot Sauce, Louisiana Hot Sauce, El Yucateo Chipotle Tabasco, and Green Tabasco.

All this can be yours for just $14 per drink or go bottomless for $35. And, not to add too much to your already full bar plate, but the hotel also happens to come with a Mimosa Bar as well. So, it looks like you’ll just have to book a return vacation to experience that one too.
