The freshness of the kaffir lime brightens up the flavor but keeps this bloody's signature crimson color.

Thai Lemongrass Bloody Mary
Pakpao Thai, 1628 Oak Lawn Ave. and 7859 Walnut Hill Lane
Bored with the same old bloody mary? Switch it up with Pakpao's Thai lemongrass bloody mary. Thanks to the bright flavor of kaffir lime and lemongrass, the usually heavy bloody is elevated and brightened with added bite from Sriracha, chili and ginger.

Looks terrifying, tastes delicious. Just make sure to blow the flame out before taking a sip or it's bye-bye eyebrows.

Armoury D.E., 2714 Elm St.
