History of the Bloody Mary with Jeff Pogash
Monday, March 14, 2011

"In Search of the Bloody Mary"
Speaker: Jeffrey Pogash

Researching the history of classic cocktails presents a very slippery slope. Sadly, few facts survive the ravages of rumor and time (and occasionally drink). Usually, despite diligent research, the precise moment at which any particular cocktail is concocted, named, and broadcast remains shrouded in the mysteries of time, place, and marketing.

While figures like Fernand Petiot and George Jessel credit themselves with "inventing" the Bloody Mary, the real story of this provocative drink is far more complicated and intriguing, a tale that spans two continents and three generations.

Join author Jeffrey Pogash as he tells about his journey to unwind some of the mysteries and misconceptions surrounding the world's most popular brunch drink. Bloody Marys will be served, courtesy of Belvedere Vodka, along with some classic 1930s - 1950s appetizers.

Jeffrey Pogash is Director of Media Relations for Moe╠łt-Hennessy, U.S.A., and the author of "The Saga of Bloody Mary" (forthcoming from Thornwillow Press).
