The Downhill Snapper at The St. Regis Aspen Resort

The Downhill Snapper at St. Regis Aspen Colorado

The very first Bloody Mary was created at The St. Regis New York’s King Cole Bar in 1934 by bartender Fernard Petiot, but was called the Red Snapper (Bloody Mary was deemed too risqué for the upscale hotel). Now, the cocktail is a signature of the St. Regis brand and the Downhill Snapper at the Aspen location pays homage to that original with Woody Creek vodka infused with dill and basil, homemade Bloody Mary mix, olives, cornichon, a lime wedge and a salted rim. 315 Dean Street, Aspen, 970-920-3300,

They really have something for everyone. 33 Gerard St. W, Toronto, 416-595-1975,
