An interactive component has helped make Mason's Grill one of the most visited brunch spots in Baton Rouge: Here, you can design your own Bloody Mary. Owner Mike Alfandre says the concept has soared in popularity at the eatery, which added it five years ago. “Customers love doing this,” he says. “It's something they really get into.” Patrons check off one of 17 different vodkas; enhancers like Worcestershire, horseradish and wasabi; and garnishes ranging from pickled okra to stuffed olives to classic celery stalks. Five different spice levels range from “Burn, Baby, Burn” to mild. Alfandre says of all the variations out there, the Meaty Mason is the most popular. It's made with bacon vodka, garnished with a strip of bacon and sipped up with a vodka-soaked beef jerky straw.
