We can’t think of many places more special than the cool downstairs lounge at Carthay Circle Restaurant, where guest can sip a classy cocktail and relax – hard to imagine you’re in a theme park when you settle back in the comfy chairs and order a Pimm’s Punch, pear martini or the divine Bloody Mary (garnished with a dehydrated, horseradish-crusted tomato), all served in elegant glassware. Even the ice is drink-specific.
Add an order of the deviled eggs with smoked salmon and lemon crème fraîche, duck confit sliders or roasted Moroccan lamb meatballs and you’ll be totally transported to your happy place.
This short clip shows the bartenders in action. And below is the recipe for the classic Bloody Mary. We don’t have a recipe for the dehydrated horseradish-crusted tomato garnish, but it sips just fine without. Cheers!
Carthay Circle Lounge Bloody Mary
1.5 ounces Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka
3 ounces Finest Call Loaded Bloody Mary Mix
1/4 ounce Fee Brothers Zesty Deli Dill Pickle Brine
4 drops The Bitter End BBQ Bitters
Dill sprig, dehydrated horseradish-crusted tomato slice, for garnish, optional
With ice, shake together vodka, Bloody Mary mix, pickle brine and bitters in a mixing glass. Strain over fresh ice in a tumbler and garnish with a dill sprig and dehydrated tomatoes, if desired.
