Rum Swizzle Cocktail
Rum Swizzle cocktail is a rum-based tiki drink. It is often called “Bermuda’s national drink”. Rum Swizzle is a blend of orange juice, pineapple juice, lemons, Angostura Bitters, gold rum and black rum. Rum Swizzle has been a trendy drink for a long time and its origins go back to the mid 18th century. In its earliest version Rum Swizzle consisted of one part of rum and five parts water.
Rum Swizzle has also been widely mentioned in literature, and it was among the drinks served at world’s first cocktail party held in London in 1924, hosted by novelist Alec Waugh.
Rum Swizzle cocktail is one of the best Tiki drinks for summer nights and vacations. It’s refreshing and cold, with a slightly bitter flavor. To prepare Rum Swizzle, it’s best to use an authentic swizzle stick. The sticks from the swizzle stick tree have aromatic bark on them. If used vigorously, they will give your swizzle a dash of bitters. So, are you ready to get your swizzle on?
