Bloody Marys have an interesting history that no one can really agree on. Many different people and bars lay claim to first making the drink. It is mostly agreed, but not confirmed, that the first Bloody Mary was made in the Harry’s Bar in Paris by bartender Ferdinand “Pete” Petiot. The name is the hardest to pin down. Some say it is named for Queen Mary I of England whose nickname was Bloody Mary.
