Best Bloody Mary

Morning, noon or night, a Bloody Mary always feels right! Volume One readers flock to these three places to down a delicious cocktail. Topping our list is the unparalleled Big T’s Saloon (2007 Third St., Eau Claire). Go with an out-of-towner, and don’t be surprised if they start shopping for a house here soon after. Next up, Bemis Bluff Winery (E2960 Hageness Road, Eleva) offers premium ingredients in a gorgeous setting. You can even take a bottle home! Order from among the many Bloody options at Milwaukee Burger Co. (2620 E. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire) and you’re bound to get your money’s worth. –Cullen Ryan
