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.

This ranks as the top property we have ever stayed at. The room, the resort and the staff are all exceptional. The lagoons are a place you could get lost in forever as well as the beautifully sandy beach. We had a chance to experience the spa and it was so serene and perfect. The food here was some of the best we have every had. I can only say that our stay was to short and this is a property we would love to come back to enjoy it again and agin. Thanks to all the staff for their kindness and eye to detail. We loved it all.
