The inventor of the Bloody Mary is disputed between various bartenders in New York and Paris, but it rose to popularity in the 1920s and 1930s as a drink meant to restore one’s energy after an eventful night. This also could be attributed to the fact that vegetables are involved in the drink. The association with being a drink that can help cure hangovers has made the cocktail a brunch favorite globally.

There are so many variations on the Bloody Mary, as it is often in some restaurants served as much as a meal as a drink. There are restaurants that may add more vegetables and even meat to the cocktail, for example. There is also a very popular non-alcoholic version of the Bloody Mary, called the Virgin Mary.
