We recently visited Brickhouse Grille and Tavern in Newnan, GA.

This place is a little hole in the wall in a strip mall and we stopped in to meet a friend and grab drinks. It just so happened that Bloody Marys were on special for $4 each. So yeah, we had to try them.

MIX:  Unsure

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Three olives

PRICE: $4

Not much special about this bloody mary, but it had a decent flavor and the price was right.

 

 

While in Georgia, we were excited to pay a visit to Topgolf in Alpharetta.

For the unitiated, Topgolf is an entertainment complex centered around the sport of golf. It’s a driving range that’s tech’ed up so you can compete against friends and family to score points. Anyone from first-timers and kids can compete and have fun playing against regulars and pros.

You get a bay (a spot at the driving range) for your group and treat it like a bowling lane. You can organize your teams, or play individually, choosing from a variety of different games on the nearby computer. Sensors in the golf balls and targets help calculate your distance and score. You can bring your own clubs, or use those provided.

Plus, while you’re playing, you can order up food and beverages and they’ll be brought over to you for you to enjoy.

On our first time there, of course we had to try the “Perfect Bloody Mary.

We also heard they had a Bloody Mary Bar earlier in the day on Sunday, but alas, we didn’t make it in time for that, so we ordered up one of the Perfect Bloody Marys:

MIX:  Topgolf’s “Perfect Bloody Mary Mix” and Kettle One.

CHASER: None

FIXIN’S: Lime and 2 Olives

PRICE: $8

We liked the salted/flavored rim to the glass and the overall flavor of the Bloody Mary was very good.

In addition, all of the food we tried was delicious (and our large group tried a lot–chicken & waffle sliders, chili cheese fries, signature nachos, chips & guac, etc.).

After our Bloody Mary, we switched to their margarita and that gets two thumbs up as well.

Overall, we had a great time at Topgolf and can’t wait to get to another location very soon.

While in Atlanta, I enjoyed  a nice meal out with friends at Little Alley Steak in Roswell.

I’m a firm believer that places with “steak” in their name know a thing or two about Bloody Marys, so even though I was in the south, I placed my order and hoped for the best.

Little Alley Steak

Little Alley delivered!  This Bloody was very spicy, just the way I like it–and had a decent about of fixin’s for a Bloody south of the Mason-Dixon.

The food here was also delicious (I had the scallops). Highly recommend stopping here if you find yourself in this quaint little downtown area of Roswell.

Mix: Homemade

Chaser:No

Fixin’s: Lemon, lime, olive, cucumber, celery

Price: $?

Stoney River Legendary Steaks, Duluth, GA

I just realized I never posted about my third Bloody Mary from my roadtrip over the holidays.

My third Bloody Mary was from Stoney River Legendary Steaks and it was my very last Bloody of 2012 since I had it there on New Year’s Eve.

It was going to be a wine night, but over dinner, the topic of this blog came up and my friend Trey said he would get a Bloody if I did. Of course, I’m always up for a Bloody and steakhouses typically have good ones, so I ordered one.

Unfortunately, it was just okay. Not bad, but not great, as you can see from the description below.

Spice: Not very spicy, but still flavorful.

Mix: Unsure.

Chaser: None.

Fixin’s:  Lemon, Celery stalk

Price: Unknown

Oh well, there are plenty more good bloodies to be had in 2013!

Cheers!
