Cocktail Recipe: Bloody Mary, 5.0 out of 5 based on 1 rating Did you know this? The practice of using a celery stick to garnish a Bloody Mary began in the 1960’s when a celebrity who did not have a swizzle stick grabbed a celery stick from the relish tray to stir his drink with instead.

A mixture of ingredients unlikely to be found in a cocktail have made this bright red drink very popular with bartenders, hence the numerous trademarked versions of the drink around the world.
