English term or phrase: alcohol-free version of the morning-after favourite
Sur l'origine du nom du cocktail Virgin Mary:
"This alcohol-free version of the morning-after favourite takes its name from a rather more sacrosanct icon than its sister, supposedly named for Queen Mary I."

Franchement, je ne comprends pas...

Explanation:
la "sister" en question serait le "Bloody Mary", un autre cocktail qui est, lui, alcoolisé;-)

La "sacro-sainte icône" en question étant évidemment la Vierge Marie...
Bref, pour récapituler : le Bloody Mary devrait son nom à la reine d'Angleterre tandis que le Virgin Mary (non alcoolisé, donc plus "respectable") ferait plutôt référence à la Vierge Marie.
