Hollywood has given us such talented actresses who left a mark of their own, and who made a dent in world cinema with their flawless performances. We love them very dearly and the world of alcohol celebrates them in the best way – with drinks in their name.
A marvellous outcome of the prohibition era, the Mary Pickford is made with white rum, pineapple juice, grenadine and maraschino liqueur. The drink’s complicated nature stays true to the actress’s character. Pickford was no less than a royalty in the silent film era and it’s no surprise that this drink is still pretty high in demand amongst film aficionados.
Shirley started off her legendary career at the age of three, so it should come as no surprise to you that the most popular non-alcoholic drink is named after little Shirley Temple. A charming blend of ginger ale, a splash of grenadine and topped with Maraschino cherries, this drink is everything a child can ask for and more. Of course, it has an adult version today, but the mocktail is still ridiculously popular.
Mix gin, ginger ale, lemon juice, fresh ginger (or syrup) and mint, you get a classic Ginger Roberts. Bartenders keep reinventing this drink and have come up with dozens of varieties. But considering she was a singer, dancer and actress, this versatile drink id the perfect ode.
Harlow represented sultriness and desires in 1920’s and 30’s and the drink named after her reflects just that charm. This simple sweet rum martini is mean and magnificent at once. Equal parts of white rum and sweet vermouth with a dash of lime create magic.
Joan Collins stole hearts in mid and late 1900’s with her performances in Dynasty, The Empire of the Ants and Land of the Pharaohs. But the drink that’s named after her is a lot closer to the real-life Joan. Beautiful in delicate pink and tailor-made for a day of self-pampering, Joan Collins is a blend of vodka, honey-hibiscus syrup, lime, cucumber and mint and incredibly refreshing.
