While the late, great Julia Child was cooking in the kitchen, her husband, Paul Child, put his mind to creating cocktails behind the bar. Falling between a tiki drink and a Rum Collins, this highball by Paul Child originally called for Tom Collins mix, a sweet-and-sour carbonated mixer popular in midcentury cocktails.

  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened lime juice (such as Rose’s)
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) apricot liqueur
  • Crushed ice
  • Club soda
  • 3 drops Angostura bitters
