It brings that fire, brought on by the Tabasco and Worcestershire, thank goodness for the beer chaser! The 16oz beer is accompanied by an additional 16oz of bloody mary and they don't go easy on the Tito's Vodka either, so get ready to get tipsy!

Jacked Up Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar at Hell's Kitchen, Minneapolis

After accidentally ordering just a “regular” bloody mary, finally, my mug of vodka and Hell’s Kitchen original bloody mary mix arrived so I could high-tail it to the 35-foot long black icicle hallway. I couldn’t believe my eyes! This is no ordinary build your own bloody mary bar! Over 200 different kinds of hot sauces and a smorgasbord of goodies! I didn’t add any extra hot sauce to mine, but I sure did load up on the food. I did a celery salt rim, olives, cherry tomatoes, pickles, capers, garlic, green, red and yellow peppers, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, asparagus, cucumbers, olives, extra horseradish, corn, and 2 chicken wings, one honey bbq flavored and the other coated with a dry rub. They have no limit to how much you can stuff in your mug as long as the skewers fit in your glass!
