A Bloody Mary Menu with House-infused Vodkas Steal the Show at Biergarden, Encinitas

Biergarden does have a large selection of San Diego brews on tap but I decided on Biergarden because of their brunch and FULL Bloody Mary menu! The bloody mary menu definitely steals the show! Not one, not two, not three, but FIVE bloody marys for your tasting and drinking pleasure. In a sea of tomato juice, vodka, and celery sticks, nothing makes your girl more excited than variety and individuality (that goes for my food and life in general).

Hand-crafted Micheladas and Mexican Gastronomy Awaits You at URBANA Anaheim in the Packing District

The fish tacos were an unexpected star of the show, but I traveled to Anaheim to try URBANA’S trio of distinctive, hand-crafted, and colorful micheladas. I love micheladas but typically they consist of the same minimal ingredients and taste very similar, so I was excited to try some unique spins on the classic Mexican drink. All made from different scratch ingredients and different colors, which fits right in with the decor, URBANA boasts the Tradicional, Aguachile, and Toro Rojo micheladas.

Day Dining for Brunch at the Newly Opened Fort Oak in Mission Hills

In a sea of chilaquiles, breakfast burritos, and huevos rancheros, typical for Southern California brunch menus, Fort Oak is pushing the boundaries of what a brunch menu can be. Trust me there is nothing better than having a hangover, drinking a stiff bloody mary and devouring a giant breakfast burrito, but it is also nice to have a more refined and upscale brunch experience. When you try a new restaurant and get the experience of tasting something you’ve never experienced before; don’t us brunchers and day diners deserve the same experience?

Uniquely Refreshing; Toast Gastrobrunch Arrives in Carlsbad

Toast’s featured cocktail, Alfie’s Green Bloody is a spin on the savory and red morning libation that is the bloody mary. Made from tomatillos, this green goddess is mixed with gin, Alfie’s green bloody mix and garnished with a roasted jalapeño, shrimp, stuffed olive, and bacon with a smoked salt rim. There is a subtle spice and garlic rich flavor that melds with the smoky and salty notes of the rim, bringing out the best of the flavor.
