Thirsty Thursday: Neighbor's Bloody Mary

"I'm Catholic and I can't commit suicide, but I plan to drink myself to death"

Jack Kerouac

Neighbor's Wild Bloody Mary 

Normally I'd tell you how to make one but Neighbor's
makes their own Bloody Mary mix.
The ground rules of this drink are pretty easy.

Vodka + Bloody Mary Mix + Crazy Garnish = Bloody Mary

This particular Bloody Mary is the best we've had so far this year. Lets just say the Wicked Hop is is lucky that this bar is all the way out in Waukesha.  

A lot of people judge a Bloody Mary by its garnish alone. This leads to a lot of bacon and shrimp and who-ha hanging out on a weak sauce Bloody Mary. I would make the comparison that it's kind of like a movie with great special effects but no plot (Green Lantern in 3D). What makes a great Bloody Mary? It’s in the mix. This one is good. Go try one. Now.

  1. One of Waukesha's finest - I make it there every couple days - never gets old!!!

  2. I don't drink but my family loves to come here, some of the best bar food anywhere in the area, good service, free refilled soda, bison burgers, sweet potato fries and everything else we have tried is great. I think they bake all their won breads too.

  3. The best bar & grille in the Waukesha area. Great service and Great food.

  4. Love this place!!! The owners and employees just by themselves make the visit worth every minute. Then add in the GREAT food and drinks and it seriously becomes one of the best! Gemma kicks a-- on homemade deserts.

  5. a good bloody mary is the best thing on earth!
