Bloody Mary’s, The Best Ever

Fernand Petiot claimed to have invented Bloody Mary’s in 1921, while working at the New York Bar in Paris, which later became , a frequent Paris hangout for Ernest Hemingway. They are fabulous made with vodka or gin, although my favorite is the gin.  Gin adds a little more depth of flavor.  People add a myriad of garnished to bloody mary’s. You can put anything in them from pickled asparagus to sushi.  In this recipe, I use a slider with an olive and a carrot.
