A brief history of the bloody mary including when it was created and who created it
The bloody mary is a beverage that spans generations, with its story deeply rooted in history.
According to legend, the drink was first created in 1921 at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris by an American ex-patriot named Fernand Petiot.
The original creation combined equal parts of tomato juice and vodka, although it also included pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice for flavor.
This version of the draft quickly gained popularity, so much so that Petiot moved back to New York where he began selling his secret recipe as the ‘Red Hammer’ at the St Regis Hotel’s King Cole Bar.
He later renamed the drink, Bloody Mary, before eventually giving his recipe to the public in 1934.
Since then, different variations on the classic have been created worldwide – including a spicy version with Tabasco sauce aptly named ‘Spicy Mary’.
This popular concoction is here to stay! With a fascinating backstory and complex flavor profile, it’s no wonder why bartenders and guests enjoy this timeless beverage today.
Whether you’re having one after a meal or before brunch on a Sunday morning – you know every sip will be packed with history!
How to make a perfect bloody mary according to expert bartenders
Crafting the perfect bloody mary is no easy feat. For many years, the bloody mary has been a popular brunch cocktail but the key to the perfect bloody mary lies in the details.
According to expert bartenders, vodka is generally the spirit of choice for a classic version. The preferred type of vodka can be changed depending on your preference; some suggest using a potato or rye vodka as anything extra-filtered can strip away flavor while leaving behind an alcohol burn.
When it comes to tomato juice, there’s no need to purchase anything too sophisticated. Just make sure that it is acidic and not too sweet or spicy.
A savvy way to give your drink some tangy complexity is by adding a splash of pickle juice or Worcestershire sauce before stirring it with salt, pepper, and hints of Tabasco and horseradish.
Finally, feel free to get creative with ingredients like celery salt and black pepper rimmed glasses, lemon wedges, and lime wheels as garnishes, and even suggested fruit-infused infused vodkas for something truly unique! If you follow these steps carefully, you’re sure to whip up a perfect bloody mary in no time!
