This Wet Wednesday Under Raidar is featuring the classic Prohibition cocktail, The Colony. Named after the Colony Restaurant in New York, where the elite would go during Prohibition for fine dining and fine under the table sipping. This upscale speakeasy was rumored to store alcohol in the elevator in case of any raids. Looks like the Colony knew how to keep it Under Raidar.
Colony Cocktail Recipe
1 ½ oz gin
¾ oz grapefruit juice
2 tsp maraschino
Shake well with cracked ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
Cheers from Under Raidar!
