This past Sunday was the annual “Milwaukee Largest Bloody Mary” event at Great Lakes Distillery.
This was the fourth year for this event, and the fourth year for me attending it as well. Each year, there are more and more people attending, which is a great sign. This year was especially great as Great Lakes Distillery has added on a fantastic bar in the last year, adding more seating and ambiance to the venue.
For just $5 and a donation of food to Hunger Task Force, you get part of a 100 gallon Bloody Mary made with Rehorst Gin or Vodka and Jimmy Luv’s mix. It comes with olives and Klement’s beef stick.
This year, a new bar/restaurant called Prodigal sold skewers of items that you could add to your Bloody for an extra donation. The skewer, pictured below, includes a pepperoncini, a cheese curd, a onion, a shrimp, pickle and baby corn.
Needless to say, the Bloodies were flowing and they were awesome!
In addition to the donations of food, all proceeds from the event benefit the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee.
