This $50 Bloody Mary Includes An Entire Fried Chicken

Although my path in life has taken me many miles from the fair shores of Lake Michigan, I can always count on the people of Milwaukee to make me proud by way of ridiculously extravagant food creations. I am now an entire fried chicken’s worth proud, as a bar in the Good Land has introduced a Bloody Mary topped with a whole fried fowl.

In a move that will surely light the fires of competition in other over-the-top eateries, The Chicken Fried Bloody Beast from Sobelman’s Pub & Grill includes enough for four people to drink themselves into a food coma.

The official description, via Sobelman’s Facebook page:

“It includes the standard Sobelmans garnish (cheese, sausage, pickle, olive, onion, mushroom, asparagus, scallion, shrimp, lemon,brussels sprout, tomato & celery) for 4 regular Bloodies, two Baconadoes (skewers of bacon-wrapped jalapeno cheeseballs) & a whole fried chicken, fresh from Ray’s Butcher Shoppe in Greenfield, Wisconsin!”

You’ll definitely want to split this one with your friends, unless you’re really, really hungry — the drink goes for $50, with $5 of each drink donated to a local charity that fights hunger.

I’m not sure what could beat this, though I assume if there’s any contender, it will also come out of Milwaukee. Because if there’s one thing we know, it’s combining booze and food. That, and we also all know the feeling of trying to describe Aaron Rodgers’ particularly beautiful shade of blue eyes, the hue that twinkles and shines its way straight into your heart. It’s impossible to explain.
