The Bloody Mary
the signature cocktail of the St. Regis brand
In 1934, Fernand Petiot, the bartender at The St. Regis New York, perfected the recipe for a vodka-and-tomato juice cocktail he dubbed the Bloody Mary. Deemed too racy a name for the clientele, it was rechristened the Red Snapper. While the latter moniker may not have stood the test of time, Fernand’s spicy concoction certainly has. The Bloody Mary remains the signature cocktail of St. Regis, with each new hotel adding its own interpretation of the libation.
St. Regis Moscow
Highlighting the original heritage of Fernand Petiot’s Red Snapper, the signature cocktail of The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya gives the iconic Bloody Mary a refined, Russian twist. Infused with the rich flavors of traditional borscht, the Red Maria is a savory reimagining of this Fifth Avenue classic.
You are welcomed to prepare Red Maria at home:
Combine tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, tabasco, black pepper, salt and horseradish over ice and shake. Pour in a large tumbler glass filled with one large ice cube. Top gently with the Vodka-Beetroot mix to create two layers. Garnish with beetroot ships and one mangold leaf.
