Kicking off the New Year and in celebration of National Bloody Mary Day, select St. Regis Hotels & Resorts around the world will be offering a global Bloody Mary menu for the month of January. From The St. Regis New York’s King Cole Bar where the cocktail was perfected to The St. Regis Rome and more, guests and locals alike are invited to discover the original Red Snapper as well as a selection of spins on Bloody Mary cocktails as served at St. Regis Hotels & Resorts globally -- from wasabi spiced Bloody Mary at The St. Regis Osaka to the tropical inspired Bloody Mary at The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort.
The Bloody Mary cocktail was first born 1934 at The St. Regis New York’s King Cole Bar as celebrated French barman Fernand Petiot perfected the recipe for a vodka-and-tomato juice cocktail. Originally christened the “Bloody Mary”, the cocktail was renamed the “Red Snapper,” a name thought to be much more appropriate for the hotel’s elegant clientele. After more than 85 years, the iconic Red Snapper remains the signature St. Regis cocktail. Today, each St. Regis Hotel & Resort around the world creates its unique version of the iconic cocktail, utilizing local ingredients.
Celebrating this ritual and National Bloody Mary Day, global Bloody Mary menus will be offered at The St. Regis New York, The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, The St. Regis Washington D.C., The St. Regis Rome, and The St. Regis Florence for the month of January.
