Benelux has a few bloody mary's with a gourmet twist. I decided on their Morning Rooster one today. On the menu it reads: Hangar One chipotle vodka, jalapeno-stuffed olive. It also came with the traditionally useless lemon and lime, as well as gouda cheese, a pimento stuffed olive, asparagus and a pickle.
Garnish / Presentation: 4
Pretty good, not too shabby, clean, modern.
Bloody Mary Mixup: 4
Spicy, intricate - the chipotle vodka adds a really unique smoky flavor to the bloody. It was almost a hair on the spicy side for me actually, but quite enjoyable.
Benelux isn't going to serve you up a bud light for the chaser. They just aren't. But they didn't ask my preference, so I got a beer that was a lot hoppier than I would have liked.
Friendly, bien, bien. They're quite nice and knowledgeable at Benelux.
Right about in line with what bloody mary's cost, at $8.
Total Rating: 20/25 (80%)
Overall: It was a nice change from your average bloody mary, I enjoyed the spice and the chipotle twist. Not sure I'd order this one again, I'd rather work my way through trying all their other versions!
