Red Snapper / Bloody Mary

A cocktail for breakfast know as the Bloody Mary is not an invention of the 1950’s but actually was created in 1925 during prohibition at Harry’s American bar in Paris by barman ( Ferdinand “Pete” Petiot).  It was called by it’s name and using vodka because it readily available in Europe. Fear of offending people in America the name was changed to the Red Snapper and Americans didn’t care for the drink because the lack of American vodka but gin was always plentiful to use for it, so what’s not to hate?
