Dale DeGroff discovered the Colony Cocktail in a book called Bottoms Up by Ted Saucier (1953).
This vodka-based house cocktail of the Colony restaurant in Manhattan must have been a remarkable curiosity when it was invented, because vodka barely existed in the United States, Dale writes in his book The Essential Cocktail.
1-1/2 ounces Vodka, 1 ounce Southern Comfort, 1/2 ounce Lime Juice, garnish: Lemon Peel
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon peel.
The Colony Cocktail is slightly sweet and bitter cocktail with a well-balanced tartness. Give it a try!
