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).
