Enjoy seaside dining at its best. There are many Laguna Beach, Calif., restaurants to choose from, but Splashes serves up fresh seaside cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With the sea just 25 feet below, guests can dine watching the waves roll in — whether it's inside by an open window or on one of the palm-shaded patios. The ocean views are not the only thing to savor, as each dish the culinary teams prepares is driven by fresh, local, and simply delicious ingredients. During brunch Splashes serves their signature Bloody Mary, the Sol Mary, made with house vodka, house-made yellow tomato blend, cucumber, and horseradish.
- 4 blanched yellow tomatoes
- Juice of 1/3 lemon and juice of 1/3 lime
- 2 dashes Tabasco
- 1 Pinch of horseradish
- 5 Teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 pinch each smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper
Blend until smooth. To serve, rim glass with togarashi chili powder and salt blend. Fill glass with ice and pour in 1.5 ounces vodka. Top with Mary mix from above. Garnish with celery stick with leaves, 1 blue cheese-stuffed olive, and 1 oven-roasted yellow tomato slice.
