Every Milwaukee bartender has their own take on the city’s favorite daytime drink – you’ll have to come brunch with us to experience them all (check out some of the craziest Milwaukee Bloody Marys here), but try this recipe to get a taste of Milwaukee at home.

What really gives a Bloody some Milwaukee flair isn’t what’s in it – it’s what’s on top! Over the top garnish is the name of the game, so you’ll definitely need to top your Bloody with a few cubes of cheese (or string cheese!), some protein (bacon and sausage sticks are both popular choices), pickles, celery and a shrimp…but the sky is the limit! Feel free to add whatever sounds good – we certainly do!

The other crucial component of a Milwaukee Bloody Mary is the chaser (also sometimes known as a beerback). Follow your savory cocktail with a beer, and you’ll really be brunching Milwaukee style.
