Bloody Mary Shooters are a good way to drink your vegetables.
Who doesn’t love a good Bloody Mary? It’s your vegetable serving disguised as a cocktail – and yes, we’ve heard tomatoes are technically are a fruit but we don’t think you should live your life by technicalities.
While a modern day American brunch treasure, Bloody Mary’s are likely to have originated in Paris. Back in 1920, an American bartender named Fernand Petiot mixed equal parts tomato juice and vodka. A patron who drank it suggested he call it a ‘Bloody Mary’, as the drink reminded him of the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, and a girl he knew there named Mary. Some other legends say that the ‘Bloody Mary’ was named after Queen Mary l, Mary Tudor, but who knows.
