Cocktail of the Week: INdustrial Size Bloody Mary.

The weekend is here and you are probably wondering where you can get the best Bloody Mary in Milwaukee. Well, wonder no more. We found it, INdustri’s Loaded Bloody w/ Jumbo Grilled Prawn Skewer at INdustri CafĂ© in Walkers Point.

This 24 ounce behemoth starts with a roasted garlic, roasted red onion, roasted poblano, fresh basil and fresh horse radish house-INfused Rehorst vodka, then they add some tomato juice. The INfused Rehorst vodka has so much smoky flavor that there is no need to add any of the traditional Bloody Mary ingredients, it is great all on its own. (If you are feeling daring….ask them to add a little of their habenarro INfused Rehorst vodka)

Now, for maybe the best part of INdustri’s Bloody Mary (other than the vodka of course)…the fixings!!! The only thing INdustri doesn’t put in their Bloody is the kitchen sink. There is a house made spiced rim. Beef stick, a huge chunk of Wisconsin Gouda cheese, a JUMBO grilled prawn and every pickled veggie that you could ever want. You might not have room from brunch after this Bloody!

If you don’t have time to make it out for brunch this weekend be sure to check out their Happy Hour from 2-6pm Monday through Friday or for those of you who are like me and are normally working at that time, check out their S.I.N Happy Reverse Happy Hour Friday and Saturday night from 10 pm to 1 am

For those of you who want to play bartender, here is one of my Bloody Mary recipes. (I know we don’t all have infused vodka sitting around)

2 oz of your favorite vodka (please don’t waste the Goose on a bloody!)
5 oz your favorite Bloody Mary Mix (I like Mr. & Mrs. T’s)
A splash of pickle juice (try Famous Dave’s Sweet and Spicy Pickles it adds a bit of a kick)
Squeeze of lemon and lime juice
Garnish as desired (you can’t go wrong with blue cheese olives)

Cocktail of the Week: Mojita Bonita

Mojita Bonita

Looking for a drink to sip on by the pool this summer? You could go with an 800 calorie margarita or you could be enjoying this new spin on the classic mojito. Only having 100 calories makes it bikini friendly. This drink was featured at Fleming's as part of there summer happy hour. On a scale from one to awesome, I give it an awesome.

" begin, I replaced the rum with Stoli Vanilla vodka. It has such a great silky essence. To kick up the fruit flavor, I added a little pineapple juice along with fresh lime juice. Of course, the fresh mint gives it such a refreshing quality," says Pesquera.

Here is the recipe for those of you that like to play bartender at home.
1 ounce Stoli Vanilla vodka
1 ounce pineapple juice
1 ounce Monin sugar free vanilla syrup
1 ounce fresh lime juice
10 fresh mint leaves
2 ounces club soda
