Commander's Bloody Mary Options
We will be going to CP for Sunday Brunch, and I am a Bloody Mary slut. What is the way to go? The special yellow tomato bloody, or the classic? Re: the Special BM...what's with citrus in a Bloody?
I never make a bloody without citrus. Preferably lime or a combo of lemon/lime. I order mine at Commander's (actually everywhere) extra spicy. I've only had the original and it is good.
My son swears by the bloody bar at Atchafalaya's brunch. About $12 will get you a healthy glass of vodka to mix your own at a table filled with anything you could possibly think of to make your bloody.
OK, not anywhere near CP-centric, but at the Carousel Bar in the Monteleon Hotel, I go for spicy, and then love the pickled beans.
I also go spicy - with pickled things. Consider for a change of pace the Bloody Maria - tequila instead of vodka. To echo Jazzy - I always make mine with lemon AND lime - citrus is key as it adds brightness to the beverage.
I also pickle things and add those for a bottom 'o the glass treat and as a way to snack your way down to said treat....pickled green cherry tomatoes.
I was at CP for brunch 2 weeks ago & their Bloody Mary was the worst one I've ever had including Bloody Mary's I've had at CM in the past. We couldn't even drink it!
