After a recent round of golf at Rock River Hills, I stopped into their pub, Mulligan’s for a beverage. I was sorely disappointed:

Rock River Hills Mulligan's Bloody Mary


Mix: Unsure, very generic taste.


Fixin’s: NONE. The bartender asked “Would you like a pickle or olive?” as she set this offensively naked bloody down in front of me. I nodded enthusiastically. When she returned, she had to inform me they were out of both. Not a great sign.

Price: $5.50

Definitely need to find somewhere else to go post-round in Horicon!

Last weekend, I had the fortune to dine at the lovely tapas restaurant in Walker’s Point: La Merenda.

Even though I was there for dinner, I was craving a Bloody Mary, so I asked if they had a good one.

“It’s a bit unusual,” the barkeep told me.

My ears perked up.

“We use the sauce for our Patatas Bravas,” he said. I was intrigued. I ordered one. And then another…

La Merenda Bloody Mary


Mix: Homemade (See above).


Fixin’s: Lemon, Lime and Olive.

Note: I had three of these (don’t judge) and each time, I got an extra olive, so 1=1, 2=2, 3=3. Not sure if it was a different bartender on duty or they were keeping tabs!

Price: $5, on a Friday night, even.


I recently played golf in Slinger, Wisconsin. Looking for a 19th hole, I searched “Bloody Mary” and “Slinger” on Google and Slinger House popped up–several times. Yelp? Same thing. This Ultimate Bloody Mary is only available on Sundays, but is WELL worth the wait and drive.

In fact, it’s so well-stacked with fixin’s, only a 360 view will do it justice:

Amazing. I cannot wait to get back here.
