Bloody Mary


The name “Bloody Mary” is associated with a number of historical figures—particularly Queen Mary I of England, who was nicknamed “Bloody Mary” in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs for attempting to re-establish the Catholic Church in England—and fictional women from folklore. In the United States, the Bloody Mary is a common “hair of the dog” drink, reputed to cure hangovers with its combination of a heavy vegetable base (to settle the stomach), salt (to replenish lost electrolytes), and alcohol (to relieve head and body aches). Bloody Mary enthusiasts enjoy some relief from the numbing effects of the alcohol, as well as the placebo effect. Its reputation as a restorative beverage contributes to the popularity of the Bloody Mary in the morning and early afternoon, especially at brunches.
