Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks

Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks

Tuesday 27th March 2012, by Andy

On the 28th March 1920 silent movie stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks tied the knot and became the darlings of Hollywood.

As well as no doubt sharing a number of common interests, they both also just happen to have had cocktails created in their honour, the Mary Pickford being one of a number of cocktails that came from Havana, Cuba during US Prohibition in the 20's and early 30's, and the Fairbanks Cocktail which Harry Craddock featured in his Savoy Cocktail Book of 1930.

Mary Pickford
50ml White Rum
20ml Eager Pineapple Juice
5ml Monin Grenadine

Shake all the ingredients over ice and double strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass.
