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

Excellent hotel: perfect location for all the museums and for shopping (yet not noisy), beautiful building, comfortable and stylish room, great food. However, it is the staff that make a hotel. Everyone - doormen, cleaners, butler, check in/out, concierge, restaurant staff - was friendly, welcoming and professional. It was a delight to return after a busy day, and to be recognised and greeted so courteously. I have stayed at this hotel before, and it was great to return to what has become my wonderful "home from home" in Florence. I cannot recommend the St. Regis too highly.
