Named for the famed silent movie actress, this rum-forward sipper is widely attributed to Eddie Woelke (he’s perhaps better known for creating the El Presidente cocktail), who fled to Cuba during Prohibition. At the Colada Shop in Washington, D.C., barman Juan Coronado features the drink alongside other Cuban favorites, using the measurements below.

1½ oz. white rum
1½ oz. pineapple juice
¼ oz. grenadine
1 barspoon maraschino liqueur
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: brandied cherry

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
