Mary Pickford

Andy Pearson

Andy says...

A cocktail from the heady party days of 1920's Havana.

During US prohibition (1920-1933) the rich and shameless would fly down to Cuba to party, and there was no shortage of bartenders ready to supply great cocktails.

How to make a Mary Pickford cocktail at home


  • 60ml Bacardi
  • 3 Pineapple Wedges
  • 30ml Pineapple Juice
  • 5ml Grenadine
  • Garnish - A Maraschino cherry & pineapple wedge (or a simple cherry on a stick)


  • Place the pineapple wedges into a cocktail shaker and crush with a muddler
  • Pour in the other ingredients into a the shaker
  • Fill with ice and shake
  • Fine strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass
  • Add the garnish

Andy's Top Tip - Whilst the original recipe simply requires pineapple juice, I find that the addition of fresh pineapple makes this drink so much more interesting.  Also try adding a teaspoon of maraschino liqueur as another modern variation.
