Joule bloody mary – Joule

Joule bloody mary - Joule

Potato vodka, house made mary mix, pork belly, sesame salt. $9
Joule, San Francisco CA

This place was super cute and the service was friendly although we had a large party so our waiter was a little scarce once we got our food. My bloody mary was tasty, but the pork belly description was a bit misleading and the cocktail was fairly small.

Brunch cocktails – Chambers Eat + Drink

Spa collins cocktail - Chambers Eat + Drink

Chambers Eat and Drink, San Francisco CA

I loved brunch cocktails, especially when they’re expertly made. These cocktails were ok. The Spa Collins was on the tart side and the Bloody Mary was on the bland side. I did really enjoy the Lucky Lemonade though!

Bloody mary - Escena Lounge & Grill

Garnished with olives, lemon, lime, and celery. $8
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA

We came here for a late lunch after a morning of shopping and we were surprised how nice it was. It’s just down the road from the PS house, so it was nice to discover a new nearby place to eat and relax. It was super sunny on the patio so this bloody mary was welcomed! It was on the large side and very tasty – score!

Bloody mary - Hula's Bar & Lei Stand

Happy hour $5
Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand, Honolulu HI

Hula’s is a pretty low key bar situated near Waikiki Beach. It’s a great place to relax during the day and they have great happy hour prices – heck yeah! At night, it gets super busy but I’m usually buzzed by then and back at the hotel sleeping. 🙂

I hate morning flights, but I do love getting free snacks and drinks at the Red Carpet Club. And few cocktails are always a great idea before boarding a long flight, lol!

Bloody mary – Circa 59

Bloody mary - Circa 59

Standard bloody mary. $7
Circa 59, Palm Springs CA

Circa 59 is the restaurant at the popular Riviera Resort Palm Springs and I gotta say, that for a nicer venue, this placed sucked! The service was horrendous and the food (posts to come) was disgusting and simply a slap in the face. Places that keep their business solely on popularity are just sad. I’m not sure how they maintain guests with such horrible service and food! It took forever to get water, order, receive our first drinks, get our food, have it cleared, get our check, pay for brunch, etc! I think our brunch took 3 hours because nobody seemed to be working. What a joke!
