Dwell Into The Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe


With various conflicting origin myths, the classic Bloody Mary's history is quite obscure. According to a well-known legend, it was invented by Fernand Petiot, a barman who worked at the King Cole Bar in the St Regis Hotel in New York City in the early 1920s. The Bloody Mary, which Petiot originally called the "Red Snapper," was made by combining vodka, tomato juice, and additional ingredients. The drink's regular customer, who claimed it reminded him of the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, is thought to have provided the name's inspiration. The cocktail's recipe changed throughout time to become the cherished classic we know today.
