The Columbus

The apricot-orange cocktail may have been named The Columbus because apricots were brought to the New World by the Spaniards. Isabel González discovered it in an old drink book that belonged to her grandfather. The original recipe calls for golden rum; González prefers the fruitiness of orange rum.
