Even though we’ve barely recovered from our most recent visit, it’s time to grab a bib and head back over to the Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys
Last week we posted about an amazingly over the top Bloody Mary created by Sarah Jayne Pickart at O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah works at O’Davey’s on the first Sunday of every month. The pub doesn’t open until 11am, but eager patrons start queueing outside as early as 8am in hopes of getting their eager hands on one of Sarah’s awesome creations.
"While there, she works up between 100 and 150 very insane Marys, each of which 1) gets loaded with more food than most people eat in a day, 2) follows a changing theme (next month’s is “Props to the Pig”), and 3) COSTS FIVE FRIGGIN’ DOLLARS. God bless you, Midwest.”
It seems that the folks over at Thrillist were so impressed with Sarah’s Milwaukee Brewer’s Bloody Mary that they challenged her to outdo herself, and boy did she ever succeed. Behold the glorious monstrosity that is the “”Wisconsinite Delight" Bloody Mary.
Here is a complete list of ingredients (It’s a doozy):
And remember, it only costs $5:
"…despite giving away a shopping cart for $5, thanks to the crowds, they make more money on the days Sarah’s making bloody magic than the days she’s not."
Sarah Jayne Pickart, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!
If there’s a bloody mary out there that doesn’t pale in comparison to this one, we’d love to see it.

We’ve found a new addition for our collection of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys. This one comes with appetizers, lunch, snacks, nibbles, and more snacks. It’s the work of Midwestern food wizards at O’Davey’s Irish Pub located in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
This ultimate hangover cure is topped with an extensive beer chaser consisting of pop corn, bacon, peanuts, beans, sausage, pretzel, sliders, a pickle and (this is Wisconsin after all) a cracker and cheese curd. Plus a Brewers flag.
"That’s amazing. I’m coming to America just for these," a reader remarked in the Reddit forum.
An Australian commented: “As an Aussie, I can’t help but look at that and think… ‘Is this actually a thing??’ Are you serious? You can actually order that?”
It sure is. And it’s awesome. Just make sure you’ve got a few friends to share it with and some Tums on hand for later.
Why settle for a simple stalk of celery or a pickle spear in your next Bloody Mary when you could garnish your drink with an entire meal instead? It looks like the only thing that’s missing here is an extra slice of bacon (we think there’s already some on the burger).
Because there’s no such thing as too much bacon.
Behold a batch of Meat Shot Glasses created by the meat wizards at ManBQue as edible drinking vessels for their homemade bacon vodka. The two combined creations sound like a perfect savoury refreshment for the chilly weather that’s headed our way as summer finally gives way to autumn, not to mention a great excuse to delay stowing away your grill. That is, assuming you enjoy meat as much as we do.
Here are the ingredients:
1lb ground beef, 80/20, ask the butcher for double ground (should yield 8 shot glasses)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and minced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp celery salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp arbol chile powder
You’ll also need some stainless steel shot glasses. Make sure they don’t have any logos or designs painted on them, as you’ll be cooking them and pretty much no one benefits from the release of toxic fumes.
Now that you’ve gathered all of your ingredients, here are the directions:
1. Blend all of your ingredients together in a medium bowl
2. Make 8-1/8lb balls of your mixture (heh, heh, we said ‘balls’)
3. Gently pack the meat around the shot glass, make sure it gets around the whole glass and has no punctures or breaks
4. Place on the grill, open side down
5. Evenly sear the meat around the glass then place them on the top rack of the grill for about 7 minutes
While ManBQue suggests filling the Meat Shot Glasses with bacon vodka, James Plafke from Geekosystem has another great idea: use them to serve Bloody Marys “with a cheese stick instead of the traditional celery.” Yum?
