Are you curious when the first Bloody Mary cocktail was created? So are we. In a book by Andrew F. Smith, titled Food and Drink in American History: “Full Course” Encyclopedia, it provides some insight. According to the author, the Bloody Mary cocktail was first served in 1921, at The Ritz Hotel in Paris, France.
The cocktail was first named the Bucket of Blood and also called the Red Snapper. The Ritz Hotel bartender was Ferdinand “Pete” Petiot. Later on, he left Paris and headed to New York City. While there, he started serving his Bloody Mary drink to patrons at the New York King Cole Bar. This happened once prohibition finally ended. His cocktail recipe included: vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire, cayenne and salt. Today it’s the perfect cocktail to drink on National Bloody Mary Day!
