The Red Snapper today, simply means a Gin version of the Bloody Mary. However, both the Red Snapper and the Bloody Mary have very unclear origins, the Red Snapper was also once listed as the Vodka version we know as the Bloody Mary these days!

Whatever the history, this family of long, savory, spicy drinks are not only some of the world’s most famous cocktails, but also the most adaptable. When serving the Fords Gin Red Snapper, we’d recommend a good selection of garnishes and a bottle of Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco on hand for guests to tweak and finish their serve to their liking.
