Louisville, KY Restaurant serves a Bloody Mary called the Beast
There are many reasons to take a road trip to Louisville, Kentucky. But I just came across another “bloody” good!
I went to undergraduate school at the University of Louisville and lived about five minutes from downtown. I loved my time there and spent a lot of time in my early twenties at the restaurants and nightclubs in town. I can assure you that if CC’s Kitchen had been around in the early to mid 90’s, my friends and I would have been everywhere. I mean, hello? ! They host Drag Brunch on weekends.
CC’s, which is located at 800 South 4th Street, recently unveiled an “elegance extravaganza” of a cocktail party. It is a gigantic Blood Mary called “The Beast”.
Here is a photo that will give you an idea of the scale of this thing. It’s a fucking monster!
Look at this thing! It’s bigger than his head. She could wear it like a Kentucky Derby hat.
Now many people in this area hear “The Beast” and immediately think of the legendary wooden roller coaster at Kings Island amusement park. I will admit it. I’ve ridden this bad boy once or eighty.
Coincidentally, this particular ride has something in common with CC’s new Bloody Mary. This drink is basically a roller coaster in a glass. Along with 64 ounces of Bloody Mary, “The Beast” is packed with a LOT of bells and whistles. You will scream when you see it.
Earlier this week, I spoke with CC owner Corey. I asked him to give me a taste of just what this inventive and crazy A$$ drink is stuffed with. So fasten your seatbelts, keep your head back and let’s go.
“The Beast” is served with shrimp skewers, bacon, pickles, olives, cheese, foot-long sausages, fries, corn dogs and, yes, chicken. A WHOLE CHICKEN!! And, Corey isn’t holding back on condiments either. This Bloody Mary is topped with plastic cups containing dips like ketchup, hot sauce and more. And an extra fun fact for you: CC’s Bloody Mary mix is homemade. Corey knows what he’s doing and I told you I found a damn good reason to drive to Louisville.
Corey, originally from Wisconsin, said, “I thought Kentucky needed some overdone Bloody Marys.” Well, he certainly delivered! And, stay tuned. Corey is set to roll out a mimosa release later this week.
