"If you order a Bloody Mary in Wisconsin, it comes with sausage, cheese, and beer!"

Untitled

Chris, caught Facebooking at Graze.

Also on the skewer: an olive and a pickled brussels sprout.

Wisconsin is awesome. Hi Chris.

In some countries, that would feed a family of four.

To finish up that meal in a glass, try their Really Magic Coffee, you may be alert, but may have trouble finding your way home.

Well bloody 'ell.

chickenlittle said...

I'm guessing that "sprout" rhymes with "kraut" and that's why it's included.

Why the olive? Where's the celery stalk?

Penny said...

I don't like Bloody Mary's, but I would love that little appetizer that just came with it instead of celery.

Well done, Graze!

Alex said...

WTF - that's not a proper Bloody Mary. It has to be spicy with a big spear of celery. That's ALL>

Irene said...

What the Bloody Mary really needs is a cheese-stuffed olive.

I agree. You're looking at a "Bloody Dairy" there.

Three of the four basic food groups of Wisconsin: sausage, cheese and alcohol. All that's needed is pastry to complete the picture.

Penny said...

Wondering if Chris is sporting a new iPhone?

It's tangerine tango!

Pantone has declared that the color of the year for 2012.

I nominate the bismark!

"You're looking at a "Bloody Dairy" there."

You wouldn't even whisper that if you got a look at those cow pictures on Graze's website.

Have you ever seen anything so adorable?

What better way to end ones beer and Bloody Mary clout
Than with the briny crunch of a pickled brussel sprout?

Karnival said...

Ach Wisconsin.

Penny said...

I laughed at that one, Karnival!

Course I sort of silently read out loud to myself while reading comments here, and as a smoker AND a German, my "Ach" was really, really rolling around in the back of my throat for a LONG time before I finally got to that "Visconsin" part.

When I lived in Madison (back in the good ol' days), the natives that I knew drank brandy - Brandy Sours, Brandy Alexanders, Brandy & Benedictines, Brandy Manhattans and yes indeed, Brandy Bloody Marys.

Entertaining was easy - just stock up on brandy. Personally, I preferred Dewars with a splash of water on the rocks.

Methadras said...

What is it with dumb, faggoty names on their cafe's and restaurants. Graze? Why not just call it Eat instead? Couldn't get any gayer. Trying to be hip and trendy but failing all at once. Gives the impression that a herd of cattle are coming in through the door to Graze.

Dog food on sale, hauled by bike from the store, one on the front and one on the back.

In honor of Kentucky's victory a good toast to drink would be a Mint Julep with lamb meatballs.

When Romney wins tonight, a good toast to drink would be a caffein free glass of tap water.

If you get a chance, and like Syrah,

From the wine list:

Bonny Doon- "Le Pousseur" 2007 - Syrah, Santa Cruz, California ~ "funky depth"

"Quite dark with vibrant purple highlights and a perfume evocative of the wild game, black fruit, licorice and white pepper of the Northern Rhône cuvées of Cornas. Muscular tannins yield to rich brambly blackberry, cassis, archetypal roasted meats, black cherry and violets. A big wine, that is remarkably light on its feet. Silky, nuanced and complex, the '07 pairs especially well with cassoulet, grilled chicken, lamb kabobs, venison and winter wild mushroom risotto." http://www.wine.com

Eww

So you have tomato juice, vodka, tabasco, sausage, cheese, and "pickled brussel sprouts."

That's not a cocktail, dude. That's a glassful of garbage.

Seriously: If the drain from my garbage disposal was blocked and, inexplicably, I decided to siphon the contents of the trap into a tall glass, it would look something like that.

You need a palate cleanser. Here's my recipe for a margarita:

3 parts fresh lime juice, filtered (must be nice juicy limes, not overly sour)

2.5 parts Patron (no substitutes allowed)

0.75 parts Grand Marnier

1.5 parts simple syrup

dash raw sugar

Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice and a couple of slices of lime. Shake like hell til the shaker frosts. Strain into sea-salt-rimmed chilled glass. No sausage, no cheese, no pickled brussel sprouts.

Awesome

But let me suggest the Manor House in Milwaukee. Walking distance from Miller Park And one of my favorite bloody mary's ever.

Damn, that looks good. Why are these liberal Shangri-la's so self-indulgent?youroni

I went to a small town volunteer fire dept pancake breakfast last year. Sunday morning before church...8 AM....yes, Ellsworth cheescurds were served with the pancakes.

Penny said...

"Gives the impression that a herd of cattle are coming in through the door to Graze."

Yeah, like THAT never happened.

Penny said...

Welcome to my barn, Methatdras.

Ha ha

Penny said...

Oops, sorry, not really my barn.

I just "lease" while I comment here at Althouse.

Dang woman's a bit of a narcissist and into branding with her "Double AA".

I get that.

Penny said...

And frankly, very proud for Althouse, and me too, for finding her, and reading her, and... THINKING.

Thank you, Simon.

And not the "Simon" all the regulars here assume I speak of.

Pretty good with "chain of custody" if I must say so myself.

MadisonMan said...

gadfly, what about BOFS, as my wife, the former waitress, calls a Brandy Old-Fashioned Sweet.

I hope the person who said that Bloody Marys came with sausage, cheese and beer was bragging and not complaining.

Penny said...

Mad Man, knew a sweet, new-fashioned, Brandy "once upon a time" - in a past life.

Damn, that girl could dance!

Penny said...

And thank GOD she could!

Girl was nearly the worst barmaid I ever met.

Sweet though, and that has got to count for something.

Penny said...

Right?

Penny said...

I mean, Brandy wasn't "sweet" when she was doing her job. Yet she was always sweet to me.

Firey young redhead barmaid, grateful I was a "single pour"?

One of us might have been a "grasshopper"!

jcross1kirk said...

You promise to meet me there, I'll come up there from Georgia for one of those Bloody Mary's. That looked GOOD!

(Sniff) He has well and truly risen.

There's nothing like a refreshing Michelada on a hot Georgia afternoon.
I put a habanero in mine.
