Hangover Hell?  Get Some Darnley.

Lord Darnley’s Bloody Mary Mix

On the night of February 10, 1567 an explosion devastated  the Edinburgh residence of Lord Darnley, husband of Mary, Queen of Scots.  Those arriving at the scene of devastation found, under a tree in the garden, the naked corpses of  Darnley and his valet.  Neither had died in the explosion,but both bodies bore marks of strangulation. At the time, Mary was conveniently away attending a wedding masque.  Clearly a murder taken place, and the legend of  Bloody Mary was born!
