Brunch Dreams Do Come True: Sunday Brunch at the Le Fontainebleau Room at the Westgate Hotel

A tuxedoed server walks around filling up your champagne flute anytime they spot it empty and your dirty dishes from the buffet are constantly cleared away. When you descend on the buffet, you come back to your table with folded napkins, cleared dishes and a glass full of champagne….I could get used to that!

Sexy Charcuterie in a Glass, The Tower23 Bloody Mary at JRDN

The Tower23 bloody mary had a stunning presentation; glistening in the sunbeams on the oceanfront patio, It was almost too pretty to drink! JRDN infuses their vodka with jalapeños and cilantro. I personally love cilantro, it gives meals and drinks such a refreshing and floral taste, in the best way possible. The mix is made in-house with a mild flavor but has that last second kick from the jalapeño infusion and spices. The jalapeños gave the bloody a perfect amount of heat, making it drinkable for lovers of all spice-levels.

Build Your Own Bloody Mary at Davanti Enoteca in Little Italy

Next, a qualified assistant walks you through the bloody mary bar and builds it for you! Because one does not, “build your own”. You let your bloody mary assistant know how spicy you want it (there is a large array of hot sauces to choose from) on a scale of 1-10, she adds Worcestershire sauce and fresh lemon juice and then your journey begins. Courtney and I went in two different directions for our toppings. Courtney chose bacon, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, ham, and a few veggies. I went for a kosher salt rim, pepper, celery salt, chili powder, pickled carrots, cauliflower, and peppers.

Leaving Minnesota Behind, Horseradish Vodka Bloody Marys at Moscow on the Hill in Saint Paul

It was 4:30 p.m. during the week so, quite honestly, I wasn’t thinking about having a bloody mary. However, when I read the drink menu and saw under Moscow Cocktails: The Bloody Russian, I couldn’t refuse my inner tomato-loving-self telling me to go for it. I am so glad I did because this bloody mary was top notch!
