Camping and Hiking relief - Carlee's Borrego Springs, CA
While hiking and camping with family in Anza Borrego between X-mas and New Years my Aunt suggested we stop in at Carlee's for lunch and a drink. Me being me, I ordered the drink pictured above.
Carlee's take on the Bloody Mary is simple. Not a ton of flash and pizazz, but just a good down to earth simple libation that hit the spot after a day of hiking. While it won't win any prizes or finish top in my ratings, there is something to be said for it's simplicity.
Borrego Springs doesn't have a lot of things that other towns may have. There is no McD's, not even a Starbucks or a Subway. What it does have is residence in the middle of a beautiful area, a simple charm, and exactly what you need without a ton of frills. Oh, and they have Carlee's, and judging by the size of the crowd there on the day we visited, that is a very good thing to have.
Total Bloody Mary Score: 25
