Charlie Chaplin

Some say this pre-Prohibition cocktail was the first drink named after a movie star — it was created at New York City's Waldorf Astoria as Charlie Chaplin rose to fame in silent films. Sloe gin, a red fruit-infused liqueur from England, was likely a nod to Chaplin's British roots.

Marlene Dietrich

According to legend, Marlene Dietrich sucked on lemon wedges to keep her cheeks taut — which is why her signature drink is garnished with citrus. This cocktail is a riff on an old fashioned and likely originated at Hollywood's Hi Ho Club in the '30s.

Greta Garbo

The original Greta Garbo cocktail, created in the '40s, called for the Swedish spirit Punsch because of the actress's Swedish heritage. But the citrusy spiced liqueur fell out of fashion, so the recipe changed over time: Modern-day versions include other fruity or spicy spirits.

Cary Grant

It's unlikely Cary Grant ever tried his namesake drink — it was invented toward the end of his life, and he was a martini man. But the coffee-flavored cocktail has ties to old Hollywood: It was created at the famous 21 Club in New York City, a hangout for Grant and other stars.

Ginger Rogers

Although Ginger Rogers was a teetotaler, the actress and dancer inspired many ginger-flavored cocktails. This version is fairly modern — it was invented in the '90s at Zefiro, a popular Portland, Ore., restaurant.
