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!

Woody's Wharf

I was thoroughly pleased when I read the specialty cocktail list and I saw, The Ultimat Bloody. I was quite surprised when my bloody arrived to our table. The bloody is garnished with a slice of crispy bacon, olive, lime, the most delicate looking stalk of celery and a jumbo, jumbo shrimp. The largest pieces of shrimp I’ve seen on a bloody mary garnish, ever. The bloody is served in a pint glass and rimmed with bacon salt mixed with Ultimat Vodka, hence the name. Despite there being a lot of flavors going on, there is an ease to drinking the bloody mary and the flavors are well balanced.

Everything Is Bigger In Texas: The Famous Bloody Best Bloody Mary from Chef Point Cafe

The bloody best, bloody mary, is an array of delectable food items with their own unique flavor and creative menu names to Chef Point Cafe. First off, the mix is made in-house, is spicy and garlicky as heck and full of seasonings. Delicious and not conventional tasting in the slightest. 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! 

Aloha, Honeymoon Bloody Marys at the Hyatt Regency, Maui

Sugar, spice, and everything nice, is the best way to describe this bloody! Sweet and tangy and a little on the thick side. I've heard they put brown sugar in their bloodys, but I wasn't able to confirm. The spice was more peppery than horseradish and the tabasco flavor was prevalent. The skewer had some scrumptious treats. A lime pin wheel, bacon, pepperoncini, olive, celery and an old bay rim seasoning. I was very thankful for the waiter who went out of his way to bring me this bloody, that’s 5-star service! The icing on the cake this breakfast was the scenery, waterfalls and swans wading in a pond, with the palm trees and the ocean as a backdrop!

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!
