Chef Point Restaurant & Bar’s playful Bloody Mary, initially an April Fool’s joke, becomes a real hit, set to debut at the State Fair of Texas, according to a Dallas Morning News article which reports,
“An outrageous take on the classic Bloody Mary began as a simple April Fool’s joke.
Chef Point Restaurant & Bar in Colleyville posted a photo of a Bloody Mary garnished with a corndog, a turkey leg, corn on the cob, a caramel apple and funnel cake. To the surprise of co-owners Franson Nwaeze and Paula Merrell Nwaeze, several customers tried to order the so-called State Fair Bloody Mary..”
After their April Fool’s joke, Chef Point noticed genuine interest and decided to turn the special Bloody Mary into a reality, according to a Fort Worth-Star Telegram article. They say,
““We just put it together real quickly and took a picture of it and did an email as an April Fool’s joke,” she said. “Some people didn’t realize it was an April Fool’s joke and came into the restaurant and wanted to get it.”
Since the curiosity was there, Chef Point kept tinkering with the idea to bring the special bloody mary to life.
The hardest part about crafting the cocktail was simply trying to make sure everything stayed upright and didn’t tip the glass over, Nwaeze said. But Chef Point has had practice with show stopping bloody mary’s.”
Chef Point Bar & Restaurant in Colleyville is open throughout the week with varying hours, offering their unique concoction.
