Twins unveil Bloody Mary that features a bacon cheeseburger as a garnish (photos)


The home opener for the Minnesota Twins is not until next Monday, but the team unveiled some of the more interesting new offerings that will be available for fans at Target Field during the 2014 MLB season.

Among the many savory and fattening offerings, there is the Valentini’s Bucket of Meatballs at Frankie V’s, the outpost in honor of Frankie “Sweet Music Viola”:

Of course, bacon makes its necessary appearance:

How about a porketta and cream cheese egg roll?

Don’t forget about the Minnesota Crispy Belly Bacon with Jalapeno Jelly and Vinegar Slaw:

But for true gastronomic absurdity, one new menu item outshines them all:

Yep, that’s a Bloody Mary with a sizable bacon cheeseburger slider as a garnish. How that stays on top of the drink defies gravity.

Called the Bigger, Better Burger Bloody Mary, it centers around homemade triple pepper infused vodka, but the garnishes are where this drink achieves next level status. Garnishes include celery, pickled asparagus, cheddar and pepper jack cheese cubes, pepperoncini, olives and a pickle spear. And then to top it all off, oh yeah, a bacon cheeseburger slider.

The burger bloody is available at Kent Hrbek’s eatery in Target Field. Knowing Hrbie’s love for booze and burgers, not to mention his considerable girth, something tells me the former Twins first baseman may be bellying up to his own bar and ordering one of these bad boys on many occasions.
