We recently visited Mad Rooster Cafe on Miller Park Way in Milwaukee.

 

We’ve previously enjoyed both breakfast and lunch at this establishment, but had not had the pleasure of trying their “Mad Mary,” described on the menu as “our special blend of homemade bloody mary with Smirnoff vodka, unbelievably garnished! A meal in itself!”

We decided we were overdue, so we ordered up a Mad Mary with our omelette.

Mad Rooster Cafe

MIX: Housemade

CHASER: a Miller High Life pony (we declined on this particular visit because it was before 10am and we were also ordering breakfast… Not that that has stopped us before)

FIXIN’S: Lime, lemon, deviled egg, stuffed olive (bleu cheese?), pickle and celery stalk

PRICE: $9 (or $8 w/0 chaser–also these are specially priced on Fridays)

The taste of the this bloody was light and refreshing and I enjoyed the egg as a garnish, even though the yolk fell out and dissolved in the beverage; however, I would not bill this drink as a meal in itself as we’ve seen much grander bloodies in our day.

They get bonus points for the salt on the rim as well.

The verdict?

There’s no question that we’ll be back here for breakfast again, as this place is one of the few good and true places to get a nice sit-down breakfast in the city and we’ll probably order this bloody mary again in the future too, but Mad Rooster Cafe not a place we’d go specifically to have a bloody mary, if that makes sense.
