On a trip to Washington, D.C. we visited Arlington, VA and paid a visit to Tupelo Honey Cafe. Now we have dined at a Tupelo Honey in Georgia before, but it was on a Sunday before noon, so we weren’t able to imbibe.

Anyway, we had heard that this location’s Queen Mary Bloody Mary featured a “golden” bloody mary mix, so we headed there expecting a yellow-hued drink.

We were sorely disappointed to receive a normal, red-vined beverage.

 

The menu even noted “golden” but when we questioned our bartender he looked at us like we were crazy. I mean, we are, but crazy for Bloodies!

Anywho, not a bad drink but definitely on the pricey end and a letdown after we had made a pilgrimage there specifically for the yellow drink.

Spice: Not really.

Mix: Dixie black pepper vodka or jalapeno-poblano-infused moonshine (we weren’t offered a choice, so we assume we got vodka…boo!); “golden” tomato bloody mary mix and good ole’ Demitri’s bloody mary seasoning

Fixin’s: According to the menu: pimento cheese stuffed olive, grilled shrimp, apple cider bacon, celery, green bean, pickled jalapeno, cheery tomato, lime salt rim (Don’t believe our shrimp was grilled and also, wasn’t sure the olive was stuffed…didn’t see a jalapeno either)

Chaser: None offered.

Price: $15.00

Again, very pricey, but this place offers way more fixin’s than other establishments outside of the midwest, so we kind of get it… but honestly, you should provide what is promised on the menu. I also think our bartender was in a rush… again, didn’t ask us our choice of liqour and the fixin’s were a little lacking.

Not sure we would ever dine here again and definitely wouldn’t pony up for this drink.
