The Disco Smash
This week back in 1979, Chicago rock DJ Steve Dahl took revenge on the disco craze by holding a massive disco bash - literally. Hear about the riotous event at Comiskey Park, then douse the disco inferno with this flashy blue cocktail:
“The Disco Smash,” as mixed by Mike Ryan, bar manager at Sable in Chicago.
2 oz. rum (funky-yet-colorless Banks, if possible) 2 lemon wedges 1 sprig mint 3/4 oz. blue Curacao
Shake and strain the rum and curacao into a rocks glass over ice — preferably a mini-glitter ball chilled in the freezer, or an ice cube carved to resemble said. Garnish with mint and lemon. Drink it down, crank up the fog machine, and riot on the dance floor.
