Invented in a New York bar around 1921, the cocktail’s name is attributed to a number of historical figures including Queen Mary I of England and Mary Pickford. Others trace the name to a waitress named Mary who worked at a Chicago bar called the Bucket of Blood. The cocktail itself is a classic than some believe can cure even the most severe of hangovers.
