On a mission to find Milwaukee's Best Bloody Mary

You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.

Brass Monkey II | Southside Milwaukee

While out-and-about on Saturday afternoon, we stopped by Brass Monkey II.  The flashing sign outside said “Home of the Mile High Bloody Mary”.  Good play on words for a bar across the street from the airport.

We both ordered a Bloody Mary, not sure if this indicated it was the Mile High Bloody.  As the bartender made them from scratch he said “I hate Bloody Marys!”  I actually loved hearing it as he made our drinks.  I figured he wasn’t putting any personal ideas in and following the bars “this is how to make a Bloody Mary”.

Mix: Classic!  The bartender crafted this with Sacramento tomato juice, tabasco, celery salt, worcestershire, celery salt and A1.  Simple and great.  The mix was thick, flavorful and went down smoothly.


Chaser: Domestic Taps were included, but anything outside of Miller, Budweiser and Coors were extra.  I selected Coors and TJ went with Miller Lite.

Garnish: Even more simple.  A pickle spear and green olive.  And of course, a lemon and lime wedge.

Size: 20 ounce bar glass.

Price: I had to put my thinking cap on for this one, you guys, and do actual math.  We got a combo appetizer for $9 and our total was $18.  That’s a $5 Bloody Mary.  Great deal!

I’ll be back!  Not only for their Summerfest shuttle, but food and Bloody Marys!  Their chicken wings were so great!
