Mary Pickford Cocktail
Named for the famous silent film actress, the Mary Pickford cocktail is a Prohibition-era drink that has certainly aged well. It's fairly fruity and sweet, but not overpoweringly so. The result is a smooth, inoffensive cocktail that goes down almost dangerously easy, and looks gorgeous in the glass to boot (almost as gorgeous as its namesake herself).


1.5 oz light rum
1 oz pineapple juice
Barspoon maraschino liqueur
Barspoon grenadine
1 maraschino cherry (or more) for garnish

Preparation: How to make a Mary Pickford Cocktail

  1. Add all ingredients except garnish to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with the maraschino cherries and serve.
