The St Regis Bangkok, Thailand’s first St. Regis hotel, will introduce the ‘Siam Mary’ when it opens on 1 April 2011. The hotel’s signature cocktail is an interpretation of the classic St Regis Bloody Mary, which has been a part of St Regis history since 1934 when Fernand Petiot, bartender at the King Cole Bar in The St Regis New York, introduced the “Red Snapper,” which would later be renamed the Bloody Mary.
Since its creation 77 years ago, the Bloody Mary has been endlessly adapted, but the original recipe remains one of the most popular cocktails ever created.
“The Siam Mary is inspired by the flavors and spices of traditional Bangkok recipes, and cultivated from the St Regis history,” said Andreas Oberoi, General Manager of The St Regis Bangkok. “It is a wonderfully crafted libation, matched only by the striking presentation.”
Served in a 14-ounce silver goblet, the Siam Mary balances the spice of Thai chilli and wasabi with the zest of lemon, coriander and tomato. Guests will be able to enjoy the Siam Mary during Bloody Mary Brunch at Viu restaurant on weekends, and every day in The St Regis Bar.
