Hi.

I'm Liz. Welcome to my blog. I document my bloody good adventures across the U.S. on my quest to find the best bloody mary! Learn more about us on the about page! Hope you enjoy your visit and maybe laugh out loud a little bit.

What do you think of when you think of steins? Beer! And even Oktoberfest! Garage Kitchen + Bar on 4th Ave in the Gaslamp District has something to say about that! 

I knew before going in that the Garage Kitchen + Bar bloody mary was going to be big, but I was not expecting the gargantuan that is the Twisted Sister bloody mary. The Twisted Sister is a thirty-four-ounce Bavarian “twist” on a traditional bloody. San Diego Food Girl and I were wondering why we didn’t bring two friends or more with us to share!

 Amazingly tasty and cute breakfast shots!

The Twisted Sister was a vibrant red with plentiful spices that congregated at the bottom of the glass. I had to use silverware to mix it up, as a straw just wasn’t long enough to reach the bottom of this behemoth. The bloody mary was rich in flavor and in thickness but thinned by the flavorful Fugu Vodka. A large amount of horseradish tingled the tip of my nose and the onion powder and celery salt give it a sharp and swift taste. With the spice, there is also a sweetness to the bloody. The entire recipe was not disclosed to me, as it was the bartender secret; A good bartender never mixes and tells! I know that beets are popular in Bavarian cuisine (because of the cold climate), but if this is an ingredient, I can’t tell for sure. Lastly, the bloody had a strong vinegar taste from not only the Worcestershire sauce but also the mustard, a very popular German cuisine condiment. I personally love mustard!

The bloody mary was topped with the only things you would expect a Bavarian bloody mary to be topped with; a soft salted pretzel and a juicy, crispy, to die for bratwurst that melts in your mouth. The stein was rimmed with mustard for your pretzel, versus the tradition salt rim that I thought was such a creative alternative!

If you're in the Gaslamp area I highly recommending heading one block over to 4th Ave, to Garage Kitchen + Bar. The Bloody was of epic proportions and they have the best and cutest breakfast cereal shots! I had the veggie omelet that was served with the most divine rosemary potatoes! It’s a great place to share drinks and food with friends! Caution, drinking the Twisted sister alone, will, in fact, get you twisted!
