The History of the Bloody Mary
Like most great cocktails, there is no lack of theories about the origins of the Bloody Mary. One claim is that the cocktail was the signature drink of a bar called the Bucket of Blood in Chicago in the 1920's. Some stories claim it was named after a character in the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, South Pacific. Others claim that it took its name from Mary, Queen of Scots, who certainly had a violent temperament.

There are two stories that are more likely, however. One is that the drink originated with songwriter and producer George Jessel. Jessel appeared in Smirnoff ads in the 1950s and declared himself the inventor. There's even a mention in a 1939 New York Herald Tribune column by Lucius Beebe making the claim: "George Jessel's newest pick-me-up which is receiving attention from the town's paragraphers is called a Bloody Mary: half tomato juice, half vodka."
