Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail - Mary Pickford


You've worked hard all week, now it is time to celebrate your accomplishments with this week’s Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail, the Mary Pickford.

It was a total of 95 degrees today, which in my book means time to mix that summer cocktail once the work is done. This week's Prohibition cocktail recipe is called the Mary Pickford, aka "America's Sweetheart." No not of the modern day, but back in the 1920's she was a silent movie icon. She even went on to be one of the original founders of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

The cocktail itself was developed in Cuba by El Presidente creator, Eddie Woelke. Like many in the bartending industry during Prohibition, he fled to Cuba to mix his drinks in peace.

Make the Mary Pickford for Yourself:

  • 1.5 oz light rum
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 tsp grenadine syrup
  • 1 maraschino cherry
