Sportsman’s Redneck Juice Bloody Mary Mix

Thanks to Sportsman’s Bar and Grill in Somerset, Wisconsin, for reaching out and sending us two jugs of their Sportsman’s Redneck Juice.

I got an email from the owener, Ed, late last year. It started out by saying:

“I was wondering if you ever make it to the west side of the state? Like Somerset Wi (The Apple River -Tubing Capital of the World). My wife and I have owned Sportsman’s Bar and Grill for 19 years. We have made 1000’s upon 1000’s of Bloody’s with our famous mix. I would love to send a sample to you, to try, if you’re interested. Or if you’re in the neighborhood, it would be nice to meet you. I’ve attached a couple of pics of our bloody’s, deviled egg and all.”



Between going “out for bloodies” and my travel schedule (which typically doesn’t take me near the west-side of Wisconsin), it is usually hard for me to find time to make Bloody Marys at home, but I accepted Ed’s kind offer and he sent me two large jugs-one spicy and one regular.

I broke out the regular mix for a special occasion: Christmas morning with the family.


To keep the test pure, I sampled the mix with an unflavored Three Olives. I did not add any spices, but I topped the drink with olives, celery, cheese, and bacon.

Ed and his wife do have something special in this mix; it was very flavorful and everyone at the table enjoyed it. It had a good consistency as well.  I can’t wait to see what spicy tastes like!

The only problem for me personally (which is not really a problem) is the size of the jug. I was able to make several Bloody Marys and still have some leftover! I’m planning on using it up  as part of the base for a batch of chili I’m whipping up so it doesn’t go to waste.

Thanks again to the good folks at Sportman’s for their generosity. I hope I make it their way someday soon!
