DDW teaches you how to make the original Bloody Mary, and one with a Mexican twist

Famed bartender Fernand Petiot perfected his recipe for a vodka and tomato juice cocktail in 1934, at the St Regis Hotel’s legendary King Cole Bar in New York City. Calling it the ‘Bloody Mary’, this signature cocktail quickly gained international fame and can now be enjoyed the world over.
