The Story Behind the Name
But before we take a sip, let’s have a brief history lesson. After all, aren’t you curious why the drink has such a high-key disturbing name? There are multiple theories behind the birth of the drink, but here are some possible stories thanks to Liquor.com:
- – Fernand “Pete” Petiot, a bartender, first mixed the concoction while working in Paris. Then he moved to Manhattan, renamed the drink as the “Red Snapper,” and tweaked the recipe to adapt to Americans’ tastes.
- – Here’s the story you’ve probably heard: that the drink is named after Queen Mary I of England. The tomato juice represents the blood spilled, and the vodka symbolizes the queen executing martyrs. Cool that you’re kind of drinking history, no?
