You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.
I’ve only been to Milwaukee Ale House once before. TJ and I were with a wedding party, and it wasn’t an opportune time to try multiple drinks out. It’s been on my personal list for a while as the menu write up sounds awesome.
The Ale House is also tied for third on OnMilwaukee.com (along with Hooligans Super Bar) so I figured it was just about time to give it a try myself. Here’s what I thought:
Mix: I hate to say it, guys, but I was pretty bummed about it. The mix was watery and tasted as if there was no spice in it at all. Hopefully I got a bad mix. I mean, I hope this really isn’t rated #3 for best bloodies in the city. Let me say, I drank it. It just was really nothing special at all. I actually added quite a bit of pepper to this to add flavor and it just didn’t seem to help. Being tied for third with Hooligans, now, does not surprise me as I did not like Hooligans too much. I suppose though, everyone has their own preferences.
Garnish: The garnish was good but it was hard to look past the lack-luster mix. It came with a folded up piece of salami, a green olive, an artichoke heart, pepperoncini lemon and lime.
Chaser: Yes! A chaser was included. This Bloody Mary came with a small glass of a light Milwaukee Brewing Company beer.
Buzz: No such luck.
Cost: $8.50. It’s an average price but I don’t think it was worth it.
I’ll be back to the Ale House but I’ll be passing on their Bloody Mary.
