This cocktail was named after the famous actress whose first words ever said on screen were, “Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side, and don’t be stingy, baby.”


  • 1 ounce brandy
  • 1/4 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine
  • 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • Dash of crème de menthe
  • Dash of port wine


  1. Place a martini glass in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Pour the brandy, orange juice, grenadine, vermouth, and crème de menthe into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Shake the mixture for about 35 seconds and then strain into the prepared glass. Slowly pour the port over the back of a spoon and into the glass so it floats on top; serve immediately.
