Wisconsin Bloody Marys

by Shae

When I was in Wisconsin a few weeks ago, I went to my favorite restaurant/bar for the greatest drink ever: The Garden Bloody from the Goose Blind.  So when my friends and I decided to have a Labor Day BBQ yesterday, I knew a Wisco Bloody would be the perfect addition to our day party and become an instant hit among my friends. 


  • Vodka
  • Tomato Juice (I’m a V8 fan)
  • Lemon
  • Celery Salt
  • Hot Sauce
  • A1
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Celery
  • Pickles
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Red Onion
  • Pear Cocktail Onions
  • Small Mushrooms
  • Green Olives
  • Pepper
  • Pickled Brussel Sprouts (I couldn’t find these at the store, sad news)

Coat the rim of the glass with lemon and dip into a plate of celery salt.  

Add a dash of A1, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce; then add ice. 

Pour in about 2 shots of Vodka and fill the glass about ¾ of the way full with the tomato juice. 

Put in the celery stick and pickle (stir the mixture with these when you put them in). On a stick or spear, (I used wood skewers cut in half) add the mushroom, olives, and pearl onion.  

Place red onion and piece of cheese on top and sprinkle with pepper. SERVE AND ENJOY!
