A few months ago when a friend from California was here helping me settle in after the move...one afternoon we went to the Dallas House in St. Croix Falls. For our lunch we had one of the most delicious burgers either of have ever had. PLUS...we each had an outstanding Bloody Mary and when we exclaimed to our waitress about their goodness...she told us that the Bloody Mary's were based upon a mix made on Somerset, Wisconsin.
Last week I finally found the mix at the local grocer in Luck, WI (Wayne's)...and I bought two bottles of it for my nephew Rod...who is the family Bloody Marty artist. Yesterday afternoon I gave the mix to him, showed him where the vodka was located, and gave him all the garnish he could want and need. We were all rewarded with the best Bloody Mary's ever!
Hence the hangover we all have today.
