Fernand Petiot invented the Bloody Mary cocktail in 1921, when he was working in Paris’ New York Bar. The New York Bar later became Harry’s New York Bar, a frequent Paris hangout for Ernest Hemingway and other American expatriates.  

Harry’s Bar also claims to have created numerous other classic cocktails, including the White Lady and the Side Car.
