Bloody Mary's - DIY Style!

State & Allen

The Bloody Mary has gone viral recently, and unfortunately it’s not one of ours:

Chicken Fried Bloody Beast at Sobelman's Pub & Grill in Milwaukee

Chicken Fried Bloody Beast at Sobelman's Pub & Grill in Milwaukee

 Notice anything peculiar about this Bloody Mary? Oh yeah…it’s got a GIANT FRIED CHICKEN IN IT!

Sobelman’s Pub & Grill in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been making headlines for creating this beast of a beverage, loving known as the Chicken Fried Bloody Beast. No simple celery stalk would do for this bloody. When you order the beast, your drink comes complete with celery, pickles, olives, onions, mushrooms, asparagus, lemon, sausage, shrimp, cheese, the pub’s signature bacon-wrapped jalapeno cheeseballs, and of course one huge fried chicken. And if that seems too decadent for your tastes, then you can order a cheeseburger on top instead.

Think a Bloody Mary loaded with goodies sounds pretty grand?

Well you’re in luck because we’ve got this really cool new thing at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar in Dallas, and we can’t wait for you to come on out and try it!

What is it you ask?! Drum roll please….
