Mutineer Magazine is all about celebrations – an excuse to drink, right? Well, how about a celebration for a drink, to drink a drink? The delicious, tomato-tasting fine beverage, known as a Bloody Mary, celebrated its 75th birthday in New York on December 1st. The drink was created by Fernand Petiot in the 1920’s in France, but didn’t give “birth” to it until the 1930’s at the New York’s St. Regis Hotel.
According to New York Post, TGI Friday’s at 1552 Broadway in New York City sold Bloody Marys at the 1933 prices – 99 cents. This means I have to do one of two things. Schedule a business trip to New York that just so happens to have me there on December 1st, or create a time machine that takes me back to 1933 so I can enjoy some delicious cocktails at only 99 cents.
Here’s to Bloody Mary! Drink up for this be-lated birthday!
