So it turns out that ABCD Design isn’t the only one celebrating an anniversary this month. That’s right, the Bloody Mary is celebrating 75 years of “Old New York” goodness in October. A pretty nice cocktail to share an anniversary month with, isn’t it?
The “Red Snapper” was created in 1934 by Fernand Petoit. He was the bartender at the St. Regis, in New York. In my opinion, it is always preferable to sip a Bloody Mary sitting below the Maxfield Parrish mural that hangs above the entire length of the French furniture polished St. Regis bar. However, if a trip to 5th avenue and 55th is not in your future – you’re in luck – I got my hands on the ORIGINAL Bloody Mary recipe just in time for this weekend’s Sunday brunch.
The ORIGINAL Bloody Mary Recipe ala the St. Regis
1 ounce vodka (I happen to prefer Ketel One)
2 ounces tomato juice
1 dash lemon juice
2 dashes salt
2 dashes black pepper
2 dashes cayenne pepper
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
In other “weekend” news:
We’re off for a weekend out West. Santa Fe, New Mexico to be exact. I am salivating over the Southwestern food and can’t wait to visit the art galleries! Not to mention, I understand there are some breathtaking walking tours of the city. I hope you have as wonderful a weekend as we’re planning on having. Until then…
