MBS has a social hour on Tuesdays where some of the cocktails at their restaurants go for 50% off. On this particular Tuesday, we were here to have our last meal at Pizzeria Mozza because the damn chef-owner couldn’t (allegedly) keep his hands on the pizza dough and off his employees.

But, I digress.

After trying a few discounted cocktails, we decided it was time to start living life large by ordering an off-menu Bloody Mary. The bartender explained that they concoct their own tomato juice and offered us a taste. Chili-padi spicy, while lacking the consistency of congealed blood typical of carton tomato juices? Check.

I spent the next half an hour sipping on my heavily spiked tomato juice and pausing to “inhale, exhale” (except this wasn’t a yoga class). Generous pour of alcohol? Check.

Bartender also secretly offered us extra servings of the olives which were stuffed with blue cheese. Great service because who doesn’t like freebies? Check.

In conclusion: One of the better Bloody Marys I’ve had but probably not for the faint-hearted. If you’re into Bloody Marys which are more viscous, this is probably not for you either. Also, sit by the bar.
