I reviewed one of my favorite Bloodies late last year—the Matty’s Mary from Matty’s Bar & Grill; however, I recently returned and noticed that—much to my delight—Matty’s had added to it’s fixin’s.

Take a look at the original:

Notice anything different here?

Yes— a mini brat, on a bun, a welcome addition to this already wonderful drink. Enjoy!

On Thursday night, I met some friends for Taco Night at Mustang Shelly’s Roadhouse in New Berlin.

I had never been there before and it seemed like we drove and drove to get to this place out there almost in the middle of nowhere. I was admittedly skeptical upon arrival, but ended up pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and drink, especially the Bloody Mary—bonus!

Shelly’s gets extra credit for the boot glass—very cute.  Now on to the review:

Spice: Not spicy hot, but a good amount of spice.

Mix: Homemade

Chaser: None

Fixin’s: Lemon, Asparagus, Celery, Scallion, Pickle, Brussels Sprout, Olive

Price: $? Unsure, but we had about 8 tacos, four beers and one bloody for under $30.

In the thick of March Madness, I was able to review multiple Bloodies as I took in the Marquette Games.

To watch the Sweet 16, I headed to the New Berlin Ale House. I have been here and had their bloody before, but somehow I missed reviewing it.

Mix: Unsure, but good.

Lee’s Cleveland Pub, New Berlin, WI.

Tonight I went to Lee’s with friends. It was my first time here so of course I had to try the bloody. I wasnt expecting much on a Thursday night, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise!

Spice: Good amount of spice.

Mix: Unsure, but likely homemade.

Chaser: Miller Lite

Fixin’s: lemon, lime, two olives, pickle and beef stick.

Price: Approximately $6

Matty’s Bar, New Berlin, WI.

Today was a very special day. Today marked the first time ever that my dad had played golf in all 12 months of a calendar year (a big feat in Wisconsin)! Yes, as Molly was enjoying her Bloody at Wilde in Chicago, dad  and I hit the links at Morningstar Golf Club just after 12p.m. this afternoon.

We both played pretty well, so we decided to hit one of my favorite Bloody Mary spots, Matty’s Bar, to celebrate and of course, add to the blog.

Brian introduced me to Matty’s sometime last year; it is near his office out in New Berlin. I promptly fell in love with the huge, fixin’-filled Matty Mary and look for any excuse to go to this place which is usually pretty far out of my way.

Spice: The bloody itself is not very spicy, but it is very, very good. The salt around the rim is mixed with a barbeque-like seasoning, which reminds me of Kruncher’s BBQ potato chips (in a good way).

Mix: Matty’s makes its own mix from what I understand, and uses their own vegetable-infused vodka. Another one of my favorite bloodies is also made with veggie-infused alcohol (Juniper 61 in Wauwatosa)….maybe that’s a secret to success?

Chaser: A mini stein of Miller Lite.

Fixin’s:  A mini-beef stick, pickle, asparagus, Brussels sprout, two olives, pepperoncini, pearl onion, cherry tomato, celery stick and string cheese.

Price: $8.50
