I went to my first Colorado Rockies game yesterday at Coors Field! I have lived in Colorado for almost seven years, but have never attended a Rockies game before. I think the last time I went to a baseball game was in… Like, 2004, at Wrigley Field (Go Cubbies!!!). At my day job, we celebrated a record number of instrument sales, so my boss got us a suite at Coors Field and we got to spend our workday watching good ol’ baseball. We had a delicious catered lunch (cheers for ballpark hotdogs and pepperoni pizza!) and unlimited beer, cider, and way too much tequila.
Bloody Marys were, unfortunately, not flowing in the suite, but I made my way down to the club-level bar to grab one just because you know me, I need to try all of the Bloodies! In light of most stadium, arena, and ballpark Bloodies usually being a shot of vodka, some bottled mix, and a few olives tossed in, I have decided to do shorter reviews without the full rating scale in these situations when necessary. That way I can get right to the Bloody point!
The Coors Field Bloody was $12 in a souvenir Rockies cup. You also get your choice of booze with the souvenir cup purchase, so I went with Absolut since it was the highest-quality vodka at the bar. I recommend you get your Bloody in the souvenir cup because it’s only a few dollars more and it’s a nice gift to bring home! Coors Field uses bottled Tabasco mix, which is a decent, average Bloody Mary mix. It has a bit of tang, a bit of salt, and a bit of heat. The Bloody was garnished with a lime wedge, lemon wedge, and two green olives.
If you want a Bloody at your next Rockies game, by all means grab one! They’re pretty average, but who doesn’t want to take home a cute Rockies cup and sip on all of that tomato-y goodness next to the ballpark?!
