This One Litre Bloody Mary Is Made With Black Truffle Hot Sauce

Epic—in size and flavour.

If you thought a five-litre keg of Fireball was a mouthful, wait ’til you get a load of this.

Presenting the Mega Mary, a one-litre Bloody Mary hailing from Zsa’s Bar Bistro & Deli in Northcote. Containing fennel salt and Truff black-truffle hot sauce, this is not just any Bloody Mary.

And it’s only available for five days.

Zsa’s has been open for martinis and oysters daily throughout lockdown, sometimes from as early as 10am, so an epic Bloody Mary makes sense on their repertoire.

“…we grabbed a bottle of Truff off the deli shelf and added it to the mix and [it’s] now our signature morning, afternoon and everyday drink,” says Zsa’s owner, Zowie Minchin in an article on Broadsheet.

We’re pretty sure there’s not much that can’t be fixed by a whopping Bloody Mary, both in size and flavour.

But Bloody Mary’s aren’t just for hangovers. They pretty much go with everything. Whether it’s a sunny picnic-type-of-day or whether it’s a rainy Netflix-n-chill kinda day, drinking a Bloody Mary is never a bad idea.

Along with this insanely kick ass one-litre Bloody Mary with black truffle hot sauce, Zsa’s also offers takeaway snacks that are almost no-brainers to have alongside your BM, such as oysters, handmade pasta and sauces, cheese packs and picnic-ready antipasto packs.

You can pre-order a Mega Mary via Zsa’s website, for pick-up at their takeaway window. The Mega Mary’s are available between September 29 to October 3.
