ANTIGO - A Northwoods bar claims to have the best Bloody Marys in the area.

Bar Manager Jeremy Rotzoll won't share his secret, but he did give us peak into what makes the bar on Highway 45 in Antigo a place to visit.

"If they have one, I can usually get them to get one more," said Jeremy Rotzoll. "After the second one, they've got a smile on their face."


Rotzoll did tell us a little bit about what makes the Bloody Marys inside Rick's 45 Roadhouse so great.

"Imagine that you're super hungover and the only way to cure the hangover is one of these," said Rotzoll.

The catch is you don't only get a Bloody Mary. A beer chaser and some other ingredients are included, too. Customers say that's what makes the bar so great. You can tailor your Bloody Mary to your liking.

"It's exactly the way you want it and if there's a mistake, it's your own mistake. You can't yell at yourself," said Ritchie Sorvala, a frequent customer.

Rotzoll also says being on Highway 45 gives people from all over the chance to stop by.

"You name it, they've been here. Being on one of the busiest roads in the country, Highway 45, [I've] met them every day from everywhere, even different countries," said Rotzoll.
