A New Bar, and Mary Pickford Cocktail

My new bar is done! I put together some shelves and a wine rack that I'd had previously, and made a bar top. I am very pleased.

I am not so please that the first cocktail I made on it was the Mary Pickford cocktail. This drink manages to be strong and cloying at the same time. Maraschino Liqueur is difficult to work with in general, but here there really isn't anything to balance it except sweetness. I have to admit I didn't finish this drink. Maybe Maraschino is an acquired taste.

But hey, I have a bar!

Recipe:
1 oz Light rum (Bacardi Silver)
1 oz pineapple juice
.25 tsp grenadine (homemade)
.24 tsp Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)
