The revenge of bloody mary

The best hangover remedy carries with it a tragic history of war, persecution and heartbreak. It was created in the 1920s at Harry's Bar in Paris.

Maria Tudor, reigned England for a brief period (1553 - 1558), in which she carried out a relentless persecution of the Protestants. Due to the slaughter of hundreds of people for the mere fact of belonging to another religion to his, the religion of his father, the gluttonous and libidinous Henry VIII, earned the nickname of Bloody Mary (Bloodthirsty Mary). The hatred towards his father is born since he invalidated his marriage with his mother Catalina de Aragón, in order to unite ties with Ana Bolena. Also when the first died (possibly Enrique had her poisoned), the father held a party in style where everyone had to wear bright yellow colors.

The childhood trauma caused that during his reign he sent every Protestant who crossed his path to the stake.

Later she married Felipe II, but he left her because he said that her belly only germinated ghosts. As his death approached, he gave the throne to his sister Isabel (whom he had previously locked in a tower).

The Bloody Mary cocktail mixes red tomato juice, referring to the blood and death of the Protestants of that time. Nowadays there are several variants, such as adding avocado to obtain a Mexican flavor or wasabi (strong and spicy sauce. It is the Japanese raiforte) to give it an oriental touch.
