Johnsonville Old Country Bloody

Posted by Brandon On September - 2 - 2015

Good evening Tailgaters! Our friends at Johnsonville passed along some recipes for varying types of bloody mary cocktails. While I personally don’t drink them I’m confident that plenty of you are no stranger to one on a Sunday morning, plus they just look cool. Not to mention they’re all based on a region, we’ve had Wisconsin and New Orleans, so it might be fun to pick and choose based on the teams that are playing.   Not sure I can pin this one to a a specific region, but if the area has a strong Polish connection, say like one of my favorite places Buffalo, it might be a good one.  So without further adieu I give you the Old Country Bloody:Johnsonville Logo Small
