This weekend, I visited Door County with some friends. I’ve been visiting Door County on an almost yearly basis since I was a young child, so I love the Door and am pretty familiar with many of the local restaurants and shops. And, while the peninsula is well known for its wineries, not much has been said about its Bloodies. Well, that’s about to change as I tested out the Bloody Marys at three separate establishments, which I will cover in individual posts.

First up, is Bayside Tavern in Fish Creek. Although I have not visited Bayside in the past, I did not stumble across this place on accident, folks. This Bloody came highly recommended by my friend, Carol. I absolutely trust Carol’s assessment when it comes to Bloodies and thus, I made it a point to stop at Bayside Tavern. We got in to Door County around 5:30 on Friday evening and I was at the bar at Bayside by about 6:30p—that’s how seriously I took this tip.

Spice: Okay, so this Bloody was not spicy, exactly… it had a little Cajun salt on the rim.

Mix: So, what Carol did not prepare me for at all was the distinctly fishy taste of this Bloody! Not sure if this is accurate or not, but I’m going to guess it is homemade. I’m not exactly sure how to describe this any other way, other than fishy, but (I thought at least) in a good way. And hey, when in Fish Creek…

It would definitely stand out in a competition and I could see where it can be polarizing: you’ll either love it or, if you don’t like fishy, I could see where you would not like this one at all.

Chaser: A small shot of local brew.

Fixin’s: Olive, Mushroom, Brussels Sprout, Pickle, Lemon

Price: $7
