Local Cocktail: The Coligny Cooler

Story By Terry Cermak and Photography by Michael Hrizuk

Inspired by the enterprising big city bartenders who created iconic New York-centric cocktails (like the classic Manhattan), LOCAL Life and Rollers Spirits, Wine & Cheese have leaped to the challenge of creating and adapting cocktail recipes to celebrate Hilton Head-area landmarks, events and founding fathers. This month’s inspiration comes from Coligny Plaza, one of the Lowcountry’s most popular summertime shopping destinations. Celebrate Hilton Head’s downtown with this beach-y, hammerhead delight.
