#10 King Cole Bar — New York, NY

According to the King Cole Bar, the original version of the Bloody Mary had its genesis in a drink called "The Red Snapper," which arrived to the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York via bartender Ferdinand Petiot. The drink started as a simple mixture of vodka and tomato juice; far from the rich and spicy mixture served as the Bloody Mary today. The King Cole bloody of today is a balanced combination of the classic bloody ingredients, with a simple, clean presentation.
