- KCTS 9 Prohibition Cocktail
Presented by: Chip, Merchants Cafe in Seattle
Mary Pickford was a silent-film star known for her golden curls and was one of the first big Hollywood celebrities. She and her husband Douglas Fairbanks were considered movie royalty and their legacy lasts to this day—they were the biggest investors in the Roosevelt Hotel, one of the Hollywood Boulevard landmarks. The Cuban cocktail named for Mary is one of the first “exotic” cocktails that foreshadowed the trend of tropical cocktails that would become all the rage after Prohibition.
- 1 1/2 oz white rum
- 1 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
