Yesterday night Eva and I came back from a wonderful short trip to Berlin.

1-DSCN1752Apart from the typical tourist attractions and the vibrant city life at day we, of course, enjoyed the night life as well.

1-DSCN1756In the 1st night we went to Green Door where we had drinks mixed on world-class level.

My beloved Eva developed the capacity to find the most amazing drinks and enjoyed there a fantastic Mary Pickford. Isn´t she so lovely and beautiful?

1-DSCN1784Being back at home again I wanted to re-do the Mary Pickford. Having studied a few recipes I decided to try two versions, one with the (more original) ratio of Rum to pineapple juice from 1:1 and one with the ratio of 2:1.

I can say both versions are great, the first one is fruiter and lighter and in the second version the rum draws more attention.

Ingredients

50ml White Rum, 50ml (2nd version 25ml) Pineapple Juice, 1 TS Grenadine, 6 drops Maraschino
