The Wicked Hop

The competition for best Bloody Mary was fierce this year, with The Wicked Hop edging out longtime champion, Sobelman's by just two votes. But our readers were clear: there's a bit of magic in the tomato-forward brunch cocktail. Maybe it's their secret savory mix. Or maybe it's the well-rounded selection of garnishes, topped off with a festoon of mozzarella whips. Either way, it was enough to make this Historic Third Ward staple your pick for the best of the best.

The OnMilwaukee Editors' pick: Steny's Tavern & Grill

Steny's has been serving up its signature Bloody Mary since it opened in 1985. And over the years, the recipe hasn't changed. This balanced drink relies on an optimal blend of vodka, Clamato juice and citrus along with a blend of secret spices, a celery salt rim and a simple garnish comprised of a fresh dill pickle spear, an olive and a beer chaser. In fact, the Steny's bloody is solid proof that sometimes simple is simply delicious.

Runners-up:
2. Sobelman's

. Steny's
4. Uncle Wolfie's Breakfast Tavern
5. West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe
