What Does a $20 Bloody Mary Look Like?

San Francisco’s Waterbar serves this $20 “Ultimate” Bloody Mary, which largely speaks for itself. The garnishes — bacon and two jumbo boiled shrimp — steal the show, but the Bloody itself is darn good, too. Belevedere Vodka — not my favorite on its own — works fine with this superb blend of tomato juice and spices, and the ratio is spot-on. Drink through the straw or get an extra pepper kick by sipping from the glass, which is rimmed with more spicy goodness.

Be warned: That’s a whole pint of Bloody Mary, and it packs a serious wallop that had me napping for most of the afternoon. Awesome concoction.

    I love Bloody Mary, I like the idea of the prawns but not the bacon! The drink is like a dip for the prawns I guess…yeah that works.

    More money than____________.

    Now think about the money that the Waterbar makes on just 1 drink. It would take 6 Bloody Mary’s just to get me to buy 1. So lets see if your will to buy me 6 drinks at $20.00 each. By the way that comes to $120.00 and that’s just to get me to buy 1.
