Still in San Diego, the next stop was the Bier Garden of Encinitasanother place with a Bloody Mary Menu.

They make their own house flavor-infused vodkas (horseradish-infused, basil, rosemary & garlic-infused, bacon and cheddar-infused, etc.)  AND they are all served with a chaser, something that I’ve found is rare outside of the Midwest.

In talking with the friendly bartender (is everyone in San Diego friendly?), I was told that someone on staff is from Wisconsin and had developed some of these recipes. Ah, that explains it.


I am a fan of all things Mediterranean, so I chose the Seasonal on this trip, but surprise, it was made with RUM!

Bier Garden Encinitas Bloody Mary

Mix: Homemade with roasted red bell pepper-infused RUM.

Chaser: Yes!

Fixin’s: Shrimp, Goat Cheese, Pickled Asparagus, Tomato, Onion, Cucumber, Lemon, Lime, Olive, Celery, Pickle

Price: $12

This was the early front runner for my favorite, but there was one more stop… Cafe 21. Stay tuned!


8/10/16 Update:

Two years later, we returned to Biergarden of Encinitas around the same time of the year and found the seasonal Bloody Mary to be the same, so we decided to try another one for the sake of review. We asked the bartender what his favorite was and he recommended the Spicy.

Holy cow! He wasn’t kidding… this was delicious but definitely lived up to its name. So spicy we could barely finish it! Of the two we tried,  the Seasonal Mediterranean was definitely the best. We’ll just have to keep visiting until we’ve tried them all!
