One of the most iconic cocktails of the 1920s is the Douglas Fairbanks. Named after the legendary actor of silent films, this cocktail is a true classic. It is a refreshing and citrusy drink that will transport you back in time to the glamorous era of flappers and jazz.

To make a Douglas Fairbanks cocktail, you will need a few simple ingredients and a shaker. First, gather some fresh lemon juice, orange juice, gin, and grenadine. You will also need some ice cubes and a cocktail glass to serve the drink in.

Start by filling the shaker halfway with ice cubes. Then, add 2 ounces of gin, 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice, and 1 ounce of fresh orange juice to the shaker. Finally, add 1/2 ounce of grenadine to give the cocktail its signature pink color.
