Bloody Mary was first shaken and stirred at a bar in Paris. Fernand Petriot created the classic version in the year 1921.
Initially, the cocktail was just a concoction of tomato juice and vodka.
What’s with the exciting name of the cocktail? Perhaps it was named after England’s Queen Mary I. Some believe that it is named after a waitress at a swanky Chicago bar.
Everyone wishes to be a storyteller, and they are quite good at it! Petriot claims that the original recipe was quite simple and never had a hint of tabasco, salt, and different types of sauces.
Cocktail aficionados will agree that every place serves an improved and twisted version of the Bloody Mary.
There are three sets of people in this world. The first set loves to drink Bloody Mary on a Sunday afternoon. The second set of people find the flavors uncanny. The third set doesn’t mind trying out a new invention.
