The history of the Bloody Mary is about as unclear as its main ingredient. Most give credit to bartender, Fernand Petiot, who supposedly mixed up the first ever concoction of equal parts tomato juice and vodka at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in the 1920’s. In 1934, after Prohibition, Petiot brought the recipe with him to America and began serving it to patrons of King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. After complaints of the drink being too bland, Petiot spiced things up by adding horseradish, Tabasco Sauce, lemon juice and celery salt.
