Milwaukee, WI: McBob’s Bloody Dew

Over the weekend, we stopped for Bloody Marys at McBob’s Pub & Grill.

We had heard they had a special Bloody Mary on their menu. They call it the “Bloody Dew,” although Bloodies made with Irish Whiskey are typically called a “Bloody Molly.”

However, when we first bellied up to the bar and placed our order for Bloody, they started preparing it with vodka; fortunately, we realized this right away and inquired. “Don’t you have a special Bloody Mary made with whiskey?” we asked.

“Yes,” he said.

Again, not sure why special bloodies aren’t offered when a regular Bloody Mary is ordered. Perhaps the bartenders assume we know what we’re doing, or have looked at the menu, or maybe they even expect us to know their “secret.” But I just don’t understand why they don’t take the time to clarify or promote their specialty.



Anyway, this time, the crisis was averted and we got what we came for:

Mix:Homemade–with Tullamore Dew!


Fixin’s: Beefstick, cheese, olive, spicy pickle

Price: $7.25

This Bloody Dew was quite good, the whiskey warming you up from the inside a way you don’t quite get with vodka.

I do recall having this drink at the East Town’s Heat it Up event last year. There, it was served with a mini reuben.

If you haven’t already guessed, McBob’s is an Irish pub. It’s kind of off the beaten track and has an eclectic but passionate clientele. I haven’t eaten here, but I’m told their reubens as well as their burritos are fantastic.  In fact, I think the mini reuben in the drink should be a staple.
