Tally Ho

Today after golf in Hartford, I wanted to try a Bloody I hadn’t had before, so I stopped at Tally Ho in Erin. Apparently, they have a Bloody Mary bar every Sunday; however, by the time we arrived (2:30pm), it was over. Alas, I had to settle for a very average Bloody. That’s two weeks in a row now.

Spice: Average

Mix: Jimmy Luv’s

Chaser: Offered, but refused.

Fixin’s: Pickle & Two Olives

Price: $6

Based on this disappointing experience, I would have to advise you to head to Hank’s if you ever find yourself in Hartford on a Sunday afternoon!

Yesterday, after golfing at Hartford Country Club, we stopped in at Hank’s Restaurant & Drinkery, formerly known as “Hammerin’ Hanks,” located on Main Street in downtown Hartford.

I will admit I was not expecting much. Last July when I was in there, I had asked for a Bloody and was told they were all out of mix—on a Sunday!

However, yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised when I received this:

The bartender informed me that their Bloodies are just $5 before 3pm on Sundays. Check out all the stats:

Spice: Not spicy hot, but good.

Mix: Forest Floor—I’d never heard of it before, but apparently it is an excellent bottle mix!

Chaser: Yes, I chose Miller Lite.

Fixin’s: Celery, Asparagus, Pickle, Cheese, Brussels Sprout Olive, Mushroom & Shrimp

Price: $5 before 3pm on Sundays—not sure what happens after that.

As I said previously—I wasn’t expecting much; however, I definitely went home happy. Next time you find yourself out in Hartford, pop in to Hank’s and try them out!
