The Bloody Mary is a well known cocktail. Its
distinctive red color is very attractive and offers glamour to
the warmer nights. Now that the weather is good, the Bloody Mary
is a good alternative to mix different flavors.
Traditionally, this cocktail mixtures vodka, tomato juice, salt and black
pepper, a few drops of Tabasco sauce and a little lime
or lemon juice. Served very cold, it is even better with a little
salt and lime on the rim of the glass. In this way, the tomato
marries well with the potent flavors of Tabasco and vodka.
It supports several variations, as the spicy pepper and Tabasco
can be increased or lowered according to the consumer taste.
In the United States, they often replace vodka for
and is drunk as an appetizer before lunch or dinner. No one knows
the exact origin of this sweet and tasty cocktail, but according
to the most widespread theory it was invented by Fernand Petiot,
a bartender from the New York bar in Paris who found this formula
Since then its fame spread to various countries across the world
and started to be really popular in the U.S., where it is
consumed today. His name is also curious: it is named after the
daughter of Henry VIII, Mary I of England, better known
as Bloody Mary. She wanted to restore Catholicism in
England, causing many deaths. Here comes the Bloody marry, bloody
meaningful for England.
The legend says that this cocktail, by its ingredients,
is perfect to fight hangovers. I recommend it
after a heavy dinner with friends.
