Cocktails 0 comments

There is at least one other cocktail that claims to take its name from Mary Pickford, silent-screen film goddess, wife of Douglas Fairbanks Senior, and hailed as “America’s sweetheart” in her day. Whichever of the brews she herself favoured, she was breaking the law, for this was the time of the “noble experiment” of Prohibition.
