Essentially, the gin-based version of a Bloody Mary. The Bloody Mary was created by Fernand Petiot in 1920, and early recipes for the Red Snapper appeared in the 1940s. It was not until the 1960s that it was widely excepted as a gin cocktail. Popular at brunches (... to help cure a hangover), but also on airplanes. This is due to the intense flavour and saltiness, which helps to compensate for the pressurized and noisy environment of the flight cabin.
A wide selection of varieties exists for the drink, such as the inclusion of olive oil, giving an elegant silkiness, is known as the Bahmi Old House.
