The original recipe specified adding 1 dash of Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters, and the cocktail name was "St. Columb's Rill", not "St. Columbus Rill". St. Columb's Rill is a stream on which the Bushmill distillery was originally built. The name pays tribute to Saint Columba of Cornwall, and has nothing to do with Columbus.

Do you have a link to that effect? My copy of Death & Co. has this as written. Thanks, Zachary

They must've fixed it up after the 2014 printing. Mine bought in the first month of it coming out has it spelled as St. Columbus, and hence, that's the way it appears in my blog when I made it.

Updated name and ingredients accordingly. Thanks all!
