The Wayfarer is a high-end restaurant and bar in New York City. The bar has so many options that you can design a Bloody Mary cocktail from among 1,440 possible permutations. Tony Meverick reports for Thrillist:
Here's the deal: the base price per Bloody Mary is $12, which includes three options from the card. After that, each additional option is 50 cents. First you pick your alcohol (options like vodka, flavored vodka, chili liqueur, and more), then the base (traditional, spicy, tomato water, or the chef's favorite, Green Juice), then you choose what goes on the rim (things like poppy and sesame seed, paprika, celery salt, salt and pepper, and more), and finally, the topping (shrimp, jerky, roasted tomato, cheddar cheese, pork rind, and more). In other words, you'll probably have to have more than one to truly experience such freedom.
But I can find no evidence that you can get a Bloody Mary that includes an entire deep fried chicken. This seems like a serious oversight for a restaurant that wants to set itself apart from the proles.
P.S. This is how you mix a Miss Cellania:
1/2 cup of espresso
2 oz. Kahlua
2 oz. Tia Maria
Serve hot, then run away as fast as you can.
