Mary Pickford Recipe

Mary Pickford
Total Time: | Makes: 1 drink

The Mary Pickford, named after the silent movie star from the early 1900s, is a well known classic cocktail. Here John Gertsen, bar manager of Drink in Boston, tweaks the proportions a bit in favor of the rum, for a less sweet version.

What to buy: Maraschino liqueur is a relatively dry liqueur with a subtle bitter-almond flavor; it can be found at any well-stocked liquor store.

This recipe was featured as part of our New Year’s Eve Speakeasy Party.
