A brief history of the Bloody Mary Cocktail...
The infamous Bloody Mary was born in the 1920's, by a French bartender called Fernand Petiot was working in Harry's New York Bar in Paris, where he mixed up vodka and tomato juice which he referred to as the 'Bucket of Blood'. This basic cocktail then began its evolution, with the addition of hot sauce, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and over time became known as the Bloody Mary. Interestingly, this same bar also claims to have invented the classic Sidecar and White Russian!
This versatile drink comes in many forms - from the Red Snapper which uses gin, the Bloody Maria which uses tequila, the Bloody Fairy which uses Absinthe, and even the Virgin Mary which is alcohol free.
Whilst the body of the drink is extremely important for a great tasting Bloody Mary Cocktail, with high quality spirits and top shelf mixers required, the topping is the final touch to this mighty cocktail. Whilst the classic Bloody Mary uses a humble lemon slice, modern bartenders are using more and more extravagant - shrimps, bacon, and sushi rolls are just some of the wonderful toppings that can turn the Bloody Mary into a nutritious meal-in-a-glass!
The Bloody Mary is usually consumed earlier in the day, and is of the few cocktails that can be drank first thing in the morning without guilt! The combination of tomato juices, salts and alcohol make this the perfect drink for a hangover, and has made this popular drink for brunch and breakfast bars around the world today. Whether it's a hangover cure, a breakfast of champions, or your tipple of choice, the Bloody Mary cocktail gift set is perfect for for anyone wanting to sample a new cocktail, or as a gift set for any cocktail lover.
