How to make The Mary Pickford


*adapted from the show script

Based on the classic recipe, with proportions modified slightly by John Gertsen, manager atDrink in Boston.

Your ingredients:

  • 1½ oz white rum - good white rum that does not taste like hairspray
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • ¼ oz grenadine
  • ¼ oz maraschino liqueur

Shake with teeth-gritting, eye-squinting vigor. The pineapple juice should help form a frothy head, like a beer from keg.
