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

The St. Regis in Florence has a great location just outside the main Tourist area, but within 5 mins walk, on the River Arno. 10 mins to Ponte Vecchio, 15 mins to the Duomo, 20 mins to the Academia.
The rooms are beautiful, and service is impeccable from the moment you set foot on the kerb to the moment you leave. Staff are understated but always ready to assist.
The bar is brilliant - don't let the setting intimidate you - Gianni, Andrea, Rami, and Maximilian are as charasmatic as the room is beautiful. Drinks are superbly crafted, and they made excellent recommendations for local dining as we didn't want use the 1* Michelin restaurant on site. The Westin across the road has the views from their rooftop bar - the St. Regis has the atmosphere you'll love!
The pianist was awesome too. Great selection of music - from Mozart to Metallica!
