The Bloody Mary
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 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. Highlighting the original heritage of Fernand Petiot’s Red Snapper, the signature cocktail of The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya named Red Maria 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. Taste the signature cocktail of the St. Regis brand in Orlov Lobby Bar or for breakfast.
