You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.
When I’m at a Lowlands Group restaurant, I try to have the Bloody Mary special if they have one available. If not, I get one on the menu that I haven’t had yet (each restaurant has a lot to try)! I stumbled upon one recently at Cafe Hollander (Tosa Village) that I had not tried. It was called the Green Machine and I had to have it.
Mix: I was excited to try this one as I really like cucumber vodka. The menu description was: “Cucumber vodka, lemon, green onion, house bloody mary mix and cucumber wheel”. It sounded right up my alley and I was not disappointed. It was perfect. It was so refreshing. It had the thickness of the traditional Lowlands bloody mary but so smooth with the cucumber vodka.
Garnish: This one came with a cucumber wheel, a pickle spear, olive and a lemon wedge.
Chaser: There’s always a chaser at Cafe Hollander. Sometimes they tell you what it is, and sometimes they don’t. On this particular visit, they did not let me know.
Buzz: Just a wee-little buzz here today, guys.
Cost: $8.50. Great price for such a good bloody mary!
It’s no secret I love the Lowlands Group bloody marys. They’re so consistent – I basically know I’m going to get a good drink every time. I especially loved the Green Machine. It was the perfect summer Bloody Mary. I’m definitely going to recreate it at home.. or just go back for another one!
