On Feb. 24 and 25, two bar-based events in the borough will celebrate fiery foodstuffs — first a Bloody Mary making competition in Bedford–Stuyvesant, followed by a talk on the history of hot sauce in Gowanus.

So if you can you stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and fire up your taste buds.
Bloody Monday

Brooklyn bartenders, get ready to sweat!

As part of the 2014 New York City Hot Sauce Expo, which is taking place in Manhattan on March 29 and 30, each borough is hosting its own heat of the expo’s annual “Bloody Mary Mix-Off.”

The Brooklyn throw-down will take place at bar and barbecue joint Beast of Bourbon on Feb, 24, where 22 local bartenders will compete to represent the Borough of Kings.

Each competitor will have just 90 seconds to serve up their best rendition of everyone’s favorite hangover drink, said the expo’s co-owner Lisa Seabury.

A panel of expert judges will then grade the drinks on presentation, taste, and creativity in a blind taste test.

And spectators won’t go wanting, either — those who turn up to cheer for their favorite Mary mixologist will be rewarded with free samples. The host bar will also offer some spicy specials, including a molasses and jalapeno-infused pork belly sandwich, to go along with the mix-off, said pit master Frank Davis.

The top three bartenders will go on to the final, so Monday’s competition will truly determine the best Bloody Marys in Brooklyn, Seabury said.

“We want to see who reps the borough the best,” she said.
