Wisconsin Brat-y Mary

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 so it might be fun to pick and choose based on the teams that are playing.  So without further adieu I give you the Wisconsin Brat-y Mary:
