Mary Pickford

I've done this cocktail before but was not satisfied with the photo or the drink itself. More than a year ago, I used a cut rate rum and canned pineapple juice. Now I went with fresh all the way. A good white rim is the secret to this one, but avoid any funky pot still rums. You don't want to taste the rum too much. This drink is about the juice and the tangy zip of maraschino.

Mary Pickford was a Canadian actress, the first "America's Sweetheart" and a girl with the curls. She went on to produce films and pave the way for women in the film industry. This is no Shirley Temple, though.
  • 2 oz. white rum
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp. maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 tsp. grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
