Voted “Best Bloody Mary” on the Delta!

by | Feb 12, 2011 | Restaurant Overviews, Travel

We made our annual trek with our dad’s family, the Calhoun cousins, to The Point Waterfront Restaurant on the Sacramento Delta, and were greeted with the sign below. Well, we needed to be sure that we agreed with those voters, and headed straight for the bar. Everyone had always spoke highly of the Bloody Mary, but being a tequila shooter, I had never tried one. Well, my back had gone out in the morning, so I needed a bit o’ medicine, and it seemed that the award winning Bloody Mary may just be the ticket.

Vicki, the Best Bartender, was at her station and shared her recipe with me while she was mixing up a double. I didn’t get exact measurements, but I figured the list of ingredients was a great start. Just to be sure, after tasting two of Vicki’s Bloody Mary’s, I had to agree, this was definitely an award winning bartender and beverage!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  – Mark Twain
