You don't hear often of brilliant cocktails created in the late 1970s, but The Jungle Bird was one.

I'm pretty likely to love a drink called the Stay Up Late for the name alone, but this simple cocktail is totally delicious, too. This variation on the Tom Collins appeared in the 1946 Stork Club Bar Book. Fresh lemon and soda make it tart and refreshing, but this cocktail is rounder than the Tom Collins due to the addition of a half-ounce of cognac, which balances the herbal flavor of the gin.
