Mary Pickford Cocktail Recipe

One of the many American bartenders who fled to Cuba during the Prohibition period, Eddie Woelke devised the drink, which is also credited to him as the inventor of El Presidente. In this drink, light rum is mixed with pineapple juice and grenadine is added as a sweetener. With its pretty pink color and delightful tropical flavor, it is an excellent cocktail for entertaining in the summer.

A key figure of the Hollywood scene at the dawn of the 20th century, Mary Pickford had a unique influence on various actors. Little Mary, a petite blonde actress who played both girls and boys well into her 30s, was known around the world as “Little Mary” because of her habit of playing a young child or a boy. “Coquette” won her an Oscar for being the best actress in 1928, and she played an important role in establishing United Artists Studio.


  • If you want the best drink, pick rum that is of high quality. Using a rum you enjoy on its own or in a daiquiri will really make this recipe shine.
  • Since the lighter flavors of this recipe won’t mask any unpleasant flavors, this is the ideal cocktail for rum that you enjoy on its own.
  • For this cocktail and all others, select quality cherries rather than the common neon red maraschino cherries, which are artificially flavored and dyed. If possible, use fresh pineapple juice.
  • The easiest way to extract juice is by using an electric juicer.
