Many years ago, I was introduced to Bloody Mary. I loved it then and love it now too. It’s my good old favourite cocktail whenever I get a chance. As the classic cocktail, Bloody Mary,turns 80 this October 2014. Eighty long years of this popular cocktail.


Bloody Mary is popular in clubs and bars all over the world. Another reason why Bloody Mary is a popular cocktail is because its mixture lends itself to numerous variations. One of the most debated stories about how the name of Bloody Mary came about revolves around Queen Mary I of England. According to one story, the drink was named after the daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. Mary who earned the name ‘Bloody Mary’ as she is  believed to be responsible for the execution of several Protestants during her reign.


In early October, New York’s The St Regis hotel celebrated the Bloody Mary turning 80, and also claims to have invented the classic cocktail. Despite the drinks debatable origin – Harry’s New York Bar in Paris and the 21 Club in New York apparently claimed to have invented it. They claim they were the ones who fine tuned the concoction to make it what it is today. A note on St Regis website says, ‘In 1934, Fernand Petiot, the bartender at the St Regis New York’s King Cole Bar, perfected the recipe for a vodka and tomato juice cocktail he dubbed as Bloody Mary.

Ingredients of a damn good Bloody Mary to please the  drinker’s palate contains – 45 ml chilled vodka, 180 ml tomato juice, 1 slice lemon, ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce, ½ tsp celery salt, 2 drops Tabasco sauce, ground black pepper, celery stick, ice cubes and a splash of lemon juice. The method of  combination is in the hands of a barman.

Once you taste this cocktail, you will always love Bloody Mary. The best Bloody Mary I have had, quite a few times at the Mumbai’s, Bombay Presidency Golf Club in Chembur, prepared by an old Goan bartender, James. He had magic in his hands. The members and guests would love his cocktail. But it is no longer the same after his demise, many years ago. He has taken the magic and secret along with him. Bloody Mary continues to be the popular cocktail.

Very few people are aware about this fact. 

The Bible was Sir Isaac Newton’s greatest passion – he wrote more about religion than about science and mathematics! Indeed, Newton calculated the date of crucifixion of Jesus Christ as April 3, AD 33 and the earliest date of Apocalypse as 2060 AD. Newton’s prediction that the Jews would return to Israel came true. Newton was obsessed with trying to find hidden meanings in the Bible. He learnt Hebrew, spent half his life, and devoted much more time to this pursuit than to science.
