Bloody Hell Mary!
I think that just about everyone who knows me knows that I’m very much not a follower of the weight-loss and fashion cartels religion of “American Obesity” and that I have exactly zero issues with the normative American trend of large and luxurious meal servings. Still, some things that I find manage to strike even me oddly, as if some restaurants have chosen to attempt to prove that Reductio ad Absurdum isn’t a fallacy after all.
And yes, I also know that creative garnishes on Bloody Marys is a thing, a meme or trope even, and a way for venues to differentiate themselves from their competition. But let’s actually list what this particular Bloody Mary is “garnished” with:
- Lemon & Lime
- Cocktail Onions
- Pickled Jalapenos
- Pepperjack Cheese
- Chicken Wings
- Bacon Strips
- Waffle Fries
This is most assuredly the drink that eats like a meal. 😉 And indeed, it looks like a quite tasty and satisfying brunch, lunch, or after work snack. The only thing that makes me twitch – beyond the extremity of it – is that most Americans are conditioned to not “drink their meals” and would be compelled to order and eat a “normal” meal with it.
