You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.
While out-and-about on Saturday afternoon, we stopped by Brass Monkey II. The flashing sign outside said “Home of the Mile High Bloody Mary”. Good play on words for a bar across the street from the airport.
We both ordered a Bloody Mary, not sure if this indicated it was the Mile High Bloody. As the bartender made them from scratch he said “I hate Bloody Marys!” I actually loved hearing it as he made our drinks. I figured he wasn’t putting any personal ideas in and following the bars “this is how to make a Bloody Mary”.
Mix: Classic! The bartender crafted this with Sacramento tomato juice, tabasco, celery salt, worcestershire, celery salt and A1. Simple and great. The mix was thick, flavorful and went down smoothly.
Chaser: Domestic Taps were included, but anything outside of Miller, Budweiser and Coors were extra. I selected Coors and TJ went with Miller Lite.
Garnish: Even more simple. A pickle spear and green olive. And of course, a lemon and lime wedge.
Size: 20 ounce bar glass.
Price: I had to put my thinking cap on for this one, you guys, and do actual math. We got a combo appetizer for $9 and our total was $18. That’s a $5 Bloody Mary. Great deal!
I’ll be back! Not only for their Summerfest shuttle, but food and Bloody Marys! Their chicken wings were so great!
