The Bloody Mary’s origin is unclear. Known as a common “Hair of the dog” drink, erroneously reputed to cure hangovers; however, the alcohol only numbs the discomfort.
The name “Bloody Mary” is associated with a number of historical figures — particularly Queen Mary I of England, who was nicknamed as such in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs for attempting to re-establish the Catholic Church in Britain — and fictional women from folklore. Some drink aficionados believe the inspiration for the name was Hollywood star Mary Pickford. Others trace the name to a waitress named Mary who worked at a Chicago bar called the Bucket of Blood (Source: Wikipedia)
