The Sangre de Cristos Mountains in the distance appeared as if placed right beside us off the expansive deck and the view was spectacular. There was plenty of landmark red and green New Mexican chile being served beside the fresh and delicious cuisine, but the most memorable brunch highlight was my Bloody Mary. I’m a former bartender and know my way around this cocktail and now have it on top of my “best ever” list.
