The Bloody Mary has been a part of St. Regis history since 1934 when bartender Fernand Petiot introduced the “Red Snapper,” which was soon to be known as the Bloody Mary, at the King Cole Bar in The St. Regis New York. The famed cocktail was created when Serge Obolensky, a well known man about town whose penchant for vodka was in keeping with his aristocratic Russian background, asked Petiot to make the vodka cocktail he had in Paris.
The formula was spiced up with salt, pepper, lemon and Worcestershire Sauce, and today each St. Regis around the world celebrates the regional influences of the original recipe, prepared with freshest homemade mixes, saluting tradition with its own unique twist.
The Brunello Bloody Mary's formula is:
- Grappa di Brunello
- Tomato Juice
- Lemon Juice
- Worchester Sauce
- Celerity Salt
- Sea Salt
- Acacia Honey
- Lemon slice

We travel often and well, but never have we experienced the degree of luxury to which we were exposed at the St. Regis Hotel in Florence. Our ooms were absolutely beautiful, featuring wonderful view of the Arno, a sumptuous bathroom with separate bath and shower! We even had our own butler!! The entire staff seemed to know us by name and anticipate our every request. The Garden Restaurant and bar is absolutely gorgeous and Giuseppe, the pianist, is a virtuoso. Do yourself a great favor and indulge in a vacation here!
