The Minnesota Twins have been down this road lined with outrageous adult beverages before, but the team pulled out all the stops with its latest alcoholic drink offering, one that will be available at Target Field this upcoming season.
Minnesota Twins icon Kent Hrbek announced on Twitter that the establishment inside the team’s stadium that bears his surname will sell a Bloody Mary that is flat-out, stupefyingly, amazing and ridiculous.
That description may seem a bit over-the-top, but how else can one describe a Bloody Mary with a full slice of pizza stuffed into the glass serving as a garnish?
The boffo Bloody Mary goes by “College Daze Bloody Mary" (full image here) and it’s a boozy beverage that can pull double duty and serve as a meal.
It is described as follows:
“This Bloody Mary will bring back the memories (or not)! This cool Bloody Mary gets a cold slice of pepperoni pizza, which is just what you need with a Bloody Mary! If that wasn’t enough, you get all the other fixings! Beef stick, pepper jack and cheddar cheese cubes, pepperoncini, olive, celery and a pickle spear. Served with a Bud Light beer back.”
As mentioned above, this isn’t the first foray by the Twins, more specifically Hrbek’s, when it comes to delving into the absurd Bloody Mary game. Fans at Target Field previously were able to stroll into Hrbek’s and order themselves a Bloody Mary garnished with a bacon cheeseburger, of all things.
Hrbek also indicated on social media that there are other new food and drink items on his establishment’s menu beyond the College Daze Bloody Mary.
Let’s be honest, though. What else is really needed when a slice of pizza has been crammed into a Bloody Mary? Not much, really. That’s perfection.
