On a mission to find Milwaukee's Best Bloody Mary

You say tomato, I say Bloody Mary.

Hawthorne Coffee Roasters

I know what you’re thinking already. Hawthorne Coffee Roasters has a Bloody Mary? You better believe it and! go try it because it’s awesome. On the weekends, Hawthorne teams up with some great local food establishments for a one-stop-shop. Be sure to check their Facebook or Instagram pages for the most up-to-date happs. Along with weekend brunch, they offer a full bar in the evenings! You’re going to find some awesome craft cocktails at 4177 South Howell Avenue, Milwaukee. Their Friday Happy Hours run from 3-6PM so get movin!

For the past two weeks, I’ve been lucky in the bloody department. Sharing a top spot with Camino, Hawthorne Bloody Mary earned themselves a Top Contender spot! Their Bloody Mary is also Kendra (the owners) favorite house cocktail as well!


Mix:  Steve and Kendra’s house mix at Hawthorne is really, really great! It a great, classic mix and you cannot go wrong. The offer the Bloody Mary as “mild or spicy with a beer chaser”  The mix was thick, spicy and with each sip, I got chunks of spice and big flavor. As soon as I tasted it, I knew this would be moving it into the top contender spot.

Garnish: This Bloody Mary doesn’t need a loud garnish. The drink speaks for itself and has nothing to hide. However, it is served with a really great slice of beef jerky, olive and small cheese curd.

Chaser: A small shorty of beer is included as a chaser. I’m not totally sure what was served.

Buzz:  Very yes.

Size: Standard 16 ounces.

Cost: $6. Stop rubbing your eyes. Yes – it’s $6.

Nap Factor: No nap needed! Perfect combination… how did they do it?

    Any idea if these are/can be made vegetarian (no Worcestershire)? Or do you know of other places with veg options?

      I’m not 100% certain about their Bloodies but I’d recommend trying Beans & Barley or Beerline Cafe! Both are great vegetarian spots!
