It´s a drink related to the world of darkness, witches and mystery of the night of the dead.
The origin of its name comes from English Queen Mary Tudor, who exerted a strong repression against Protestants, because she was very Catholic and she wanted to establish their religion in England, with blood involved.
Lady Gaga also used the term Bloody Mary in one of his songs from the 2nd album "Born this way."
The best known and tangible aspect of the Bloody Mary is that it´s a cocktail composed mainly vodka and tomato juice.
There is Bloody Mary´s recipe, the cocktail of Halloween:
- Mix 1 part and ½ a half of vodka to 3 parts of tomato juice and 1/2 a half of lemon juice.
- Add 2 drops of hot sauce and 2 drops of Worcestershire sauce.
- Add 1/2 a half teaspoon of horseradish, 1 pinch of salt and 1 pinch of pepper.
- Finally, decorate your Bloody Mary cocktail with a celery stalk.
Drink it and enjoy! :)

How the Wicked Witch poisoned red apple that gave to the sweet Snow White? Maybe she put some Bloody Mary cocktail with hemlock poison.
