The origins of the Bloody Mary, that salty hangover-cure godsend of vodka and tomato juice, are as murky as its contents. But the modern-day iteration found at bars in NYC, a favorite companion to the best brunch in NYC with horseradish and hot sauce, was perfected right here in New York, by French barman Fernand Petiot at the St. Regis Hotel more than 80 years ago. From that original hotel restaurant rendition to newfangled riffs topping the recipe with bacon, oysters and more, these are the best Bloody Marys in NYC.
