Bright red Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have become the surprise ingredient of the past year. They’re on everything from sushi, burgers, bagels and now a Bloody Mary.
Center Hub bar, situated inside a food hall in Irvine, CA, has the drink on its menu. It’s a classic Bloody Mary with a celery stick garnish, but it’s rimmed with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos dust and floated with a few chips in their entirety. Yum?
If you’re wondering what on earth this thing tastes like, simply head over to Yelp, where reviews range from: “Very strong but I would like it to be spicier,” to “All it is is hot Cheeto rim topped with 7 pieces of hot Cheeto. For $9 I didn’t think it was worth it.”
