3 Madison Bloody Marys worth waking up for

What makes these Best of Madison 2016-winning...

Q: What makes these bloodies the best?

1. The Old Fashioned’s All-Wisconsin Bloody Mary is exactly what the name suggests—all elements are Wisconsin-made. The made-from-scratch mix is amped up with beef jerky from Poynette, spicy pickled eggs, fresh cheese curds and a pickle spear.

2. There’s no single secret ingredient in Short Stack Eatery’s bloody … possibly because there are 25 ingredients in total. We won’t rattle off the entire list here, so you’ll have to enjoy the mega mix for yourself out of a sriracha-salt-rimmed glass.

3. The Nitty Gritty’s Brunchzilla bloody takes garnishment to the next level. This weekend-only brunch offering comes topped with a mini version of the famous Gritty Burger.
