GEORGETOWN – In a world full of outrageous garnishes for a classic Bloody Mary, the hottest new brunch spot in Washington DC just announced its latest creation: the Thanksgiving Bloody Mary, a vodka and tomato cocktail topped with a 10 course turkey dinner.
“The Bloody Mary is known as the perfect hangover drink,” said restaurant owner Gus Henry. “But why can’t it also be known as the best leftover drink?”
The Thanksgiving Bloody Mary is served in a 16 ounce pint glass with a salted rim. It’s made with house-infused bacon vodka and organic bloody mary mix. The garnishes include a lime wedge, homemade candied bacon, shrimp with cocktail sauce, a 25 pound fully cooked turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots, a buttermilk biscuit, sweet potato casserole, cranberry relish and an entire pumpkin pie.
“The actual beverage serves one person, but we recommend sharing the garnishes with at least 12 friends or your entire extended family,” said Henry.
With a hefty price of $235 per drink, the Thanksgiving Bloody Mary is not the most expensive brunch drink of its kind. A new Chevy Chase joint is offering a $3 million version that comes topped with a 5 bedroom single-family home, two Teslas, and a set of TaylorMade golf clubs.
