Best Bloody Mary Mix Recipe

The story of a cocktail

A mixture of vodka and tomato juice with spices, the Bloody Mary cocktail remains a mystery. The cocktail, first nicknamed the “Bucket of Blood”, would have seen the light of day in 1921 in Paris at Harry’s Bar (like the Blue Lagoon cocktail!) In tribute to actor Roy Barton. It was not an instant success but won the hearts of the crowds in the mid-30s, because presented – wrongly – as a remedy for the aftermath of difficult evenings. It was not until 1931 that the mixture took the name of Bloody Mary.
