The Bloody Mary is likely to be the result of many late nights, lackluster cocktails, and apparently tasteless liquor, according to the website.
Bartender Ferdinand "Pete" Petiot mixed up a cocktail that later made its way to post-prohibition America as the Russian Revolution pressed fleeing men into Paris and Harry's Bar at The Ritz Hotel.
According to Food and Drink in American History: "Full Course" Encyclopedia by Andrew F. Smith, the Bloody Mary made its Paris debut in 1921 at The Ritz Hotel. It was originally named the Bucket of Blood but it went by the name Red Snapper. When prohibition came, Tiot later left Paris and introduced the vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire, cayenne, and salty cocktail to the New York King Cole Bar scene.
During her short five-year reign from 1553 to 1558, Queen Mary Tudor, who executed hundreds of Protestants in the name of Catholicism, is credited to the infamous Queen Mary Tudor, who executed hundreds of Protestants in the name of Catholicism. Others claim that Petiot's mother of the same name receives the credit.
The Bloody Marys on today's Bloody Marys include a variety of items, from pickles, olives, and celery to bacon, horseradish, tobacco, and peppers.
