Looking for the best Bloody Marys in Woodland Hills? We have you covered. As a classic cocktail comprised of tomato juice, vodka and combinations of additional spices and flavors, the Bloody Mary actually has a difficult time tracing its own roots; some say Fernand Petiot invented the drink in 1921 – long before any of the later claims – when he was working at the New York Bar in Paris at the time, while James Rollins, author of The Skeleton Key, says the Bloody Mary was invented in the Hemingway Bar at The Ritz Paris. The name of the cocktail itself has been linked to several historical figures, specifically Queen Mary I of England and fictional women of folklore, in addition to Hollywood star Mary Pickford.Regardless of its origins, the Bloody Mary is a common “Hair of the Dog” drink in the U.S., reputed by some to cure hangovers due to its combination of a formidable vegetable base (thus boasting stomach-settling elements), salt (for the replenishment of lost electrolytes) and alcohol (believed to be good for relieving head and body pain). Further, the Bloody Mary’s reputation as a restorative beverage undoubtedly contributes to the popularity associated with consuming the cocktail in the morning and early afternoon, especially with brunch.
