There is an amazing hidden gem of a meat market that’s just about 45 minutes northwest of Milwaukee: Leroy’s Meats of Horicon.

We stumbled upon it by accident, from playing golf at a nearby course, and we make at least one pilgrimage there per year.

One thing we love? Their Bloody Mary flavored offerings!

In the past we’ve had their Bloody Mary Brats (spicy!) and on our most recent visit, we found this:

Bloody Mary Beef Jerky

Yes, Bloody Mary Beef Jerky! Leroy’s has done a fabulous job of capturing the essence of a good bloody mary in dehydrated meat form. Warning: It’s spicy!

The only thing we haven’t done yet is tried it in a bloody mary, but it’s so good we might not get that far before we run out!

We recently visited Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Milwaukee.

Although obviously known for their beer, we had to try their Bloody Mary.

Rock Bottom Brewery Bloody Mary

MIX: Housemande

CHASER: Their pale ale

FIXIN’S: Lime, olive and celery

PRICE: $9

This bloody mary had a nice overall flavor, but was pretty average by our standards. Not something we’d seek out for a brunch, but something we’d enjoy again while dining here.
