Jo's Bloody Mary

Like most great cocktails, the Bloody Mary can boast many theories on its true origins. Many claim that a Bloody Mary came to its name at Harry’s New York Bar in 1921 when it reminded a patron of the Bucket of the Blood Club in Chicago and a waitress there named Mary. Another theory is that the drink is named after Queen “Bloody” Mary I of England, so named for her persecution of Protestants. Some like to claim that was inspired by the actress Mary Pickford. Whatever the true birth of this drink, it'll remain a classic brunch cocktail or hangover cure.


Combine this homemade Bloody Mary mix with vodka for a true Bloody Mary. However, the beauty of a Bloody Mary is that you can throw just about any liquor in there. Try adding tequila for a “Bloody Maria” or gin for a “Red Snapper.” Cheers!
