Best Bloody Mary

Who would have thought that tomato juice, spices, and vodka would be such an amazing mix? Big T’s Saloon (2007 Third St., Eau Claire) kept its first-place spot for the seventh consecutive year. Their champion Bloody features a “secret sauce.” Milwaukee Burger Co. (2620 E. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire) has a whole Bloody menu – and not to spoil it, but one has bacon. Chippewa River Distillery and Brewster Brothers Brewing Co. (402 W. River St., Chippewa Falls) makes its famous Bloodies with its own Trumie’s vodka. –Sawyer Hoff
