The St. Regis Signature Cocktail
The Red Snapper cocktail, more commonly known as the Bloody Mary, was born in 1934 at the famous and original King Cole Bar at The St. Regis New York when bartender Fernand Petiot spiced up a tomato juice and vodka libation with celery salt, pepper, cayenne, lemon and Worcestershire sauce.
This reinvention of the cocktail Petiot first created at Harry's Bar in Paris, was especially enjoyed by Serge Obolensky, a well-known man about town and then General Manager of The St. Regis New York, the first St. Regis hotel to exist.
In the 1930s, the name Bloody Mary was deemed inappropriate for The St. Regis New York’s elegant clientele so it was renamed the Red Snapper.
Irreverent no more, the original recipe is still served at The St. Regis New York and today the Bloody Mary remains the signature cocktail of the St. Regis brand, with each hotel crafting its own locally inspired interpretation.
Guests are invited to sample the collection of Bloody Mary cocktails whenever they stay at any St. Regis hotel. The Bloody Mary has been imitated and adapted, but the original recipe remains one of the most beloved cocktails ever created.
A Local Twist on The Original Bloody Mary
Honoring the regional influences of St. Regis destinations worldwide, the brand has created a special World Collection Bloody Mary menu that combines local flavors with Fernand Petiot's original recipe.
The St. Regis Bali Resort proudly presents the Bali Mary – the original Bloody Mary but with a totally tropical Balinese twist.
This interesting take on the classic cocktail uses jicama, a popular fruit found throughout Indonesia, and cucumber in its unique and refreshingly spicy recipe. Guests can enjoy the Bali Mary and feel the true essence of Bali at the resort’s King Cole Bar.

We were upgraded to a magnificent gardenia villa on our arrival for 2 of our 5 night stay,as a treat for our wedding anniversary this month. The rooms are magnificent, as are the facilities, and this is complemented by the most attentive hotel staff we have ever come across in a hotel - despite its size they make you feel like a Vip, whether it is the duty manager having a chat over breakfast with you, right down to the treats left in our rooms each day. The pool and beach facilities are superb and very clean, and the hotel butler service helped with any requests we had. We would definitely be staying here if we return to Bali in the future!
