Weekend brunch is practically a sport in L.A., and the Bloody Mary is undoubtedly the queen of cocktails during that meal. Paris bartender Fernand Petiot supposedly created the drink in 1921 at the city’s famed New York Bar and imported his recipe to Manhattan, where word of the tomato-based vodka cocktail spread. The drink supposedly name checks Mary, Queen of Scots, who burned Protestants at the stake in the 16th Century for refusing to convert to Catholicism. Thankfully, the blood red drink is far less gruesome. Many restaurants treat the drink like an art form, carefully crafting house-made mixes and garnishes.
