This eponymous cocktail was created in the heyday of Jean Harlow and is said to have been one of her favourites. The platinum blonde American 1930s film actress and sex symbol sadly died in 1937 at the age of just 26 during the filming of MGM's Saratoga. The film was completed using a body double and released weeks after her death.
