History of Bloody Mary Cocktail:
In 1921, an American bartender in Paris, Fernand “Pete” Petiot, mixed up some vodka and tomato juice. According to legend, Petiot said,“ It was suggested we call the drink ‘Bloody Mary’ because it reminded him of the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, and a girl there named Mary.” In 1934, Petiot brought the drink to the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York. It was in New York that he added pepper, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, lemon, lime, and horseradish. Petiot pushed his tomato-based drink as a hangover cure.
Born the Bucket of Blood, this drink was later called Red Snapper and Morning Glory before finally being christened Bloody Mary, supposedly after American entertainer, George Jessel, accidentally spilled one of these crimson beverages over a young woman named Mary.
