As the quintessential morning cocktail, the Bloody Mary is no stranger to drink-friendly Wisconsin.

Refreshing, invigorating and perfectly fit for a friendly brunch, a Packers kickoff or a lazy come-down from last night’s triumph, Bloody Marys are a staple of Wisconsin bars, restaurants and breakfast joints. Combining tomato juice and vodka with a host of spicy, zesty or bright flavors, Bloody Marys present a fresh kick like no other drink.
