FAQs about the Bloody Mary:
Where did the Bloody Mary cocktail originate?
A drink called “The Red Snapper” in the early 1930s created by a bartender named Petriot at the St. Regis Hotel added Tabasco Sauce to the drink. The drink eventually transformed into being called a “Bloody Mary”. An interesting read on the Bloody Mary is in this Esquire article!
What is the difference between a Bloody Mary and a Caesar?
The main difference between these two cocktails is the juice. A Bloody Mary uses tomato juice and a Caesar uses Clamato juice, which is a tomato/clam juice.
Is the Michelada cocktail the same drink as a Bloody Mary?
No, but I will share that recipe with you all soon! Yum! A Michelada has the addition of beer and some different spices.

Well, to be honest, this has never been an issue for mi Familia! teehee! However, the bloody mary mix can keep in the fridge well covered about 2 – 3 weeks. Let me know who doesn’t drink them and can keep them in the fridge that long, impressive!
