Video and Recipe: The Colbert Bump, Stephen Colbert's Signature Cocktail

Video and Recipe: The Colbert Bump, Stephen Colbert's Signature Cocktail

I just finished watching Esquire magazine's resident cocktail historian Dave Wondrich on the Colbert Report.

After sipping a daiquiri and some rye whiskey, Colbert, true to megalomaniacal form, had Wondrich create a signature cocktail for him. Called The Colbert Bump,* it's based on cherry bounce, a cordial that both Wondrich and Eric Felten of the Wall Street Journal say George Washington used to drink.

Colbert, post-drink: "By the way, after these two drinks, you are really cute."

The recipe for--and the video clip of the making of--the Colbert Bump, after the jump.
