Named for the famed silent movie actress, the Mary Pickford is a rum-forward sipper from Cuba.

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.

  • 1 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/4 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.
