Brandy Swizzle

The only thing I love more than making swizzles is drinking them. A good swizzle is a complex arrangement of rums, lime juice, and spices stirred until it is freezing cold. Sparkling water is sometimes omitted, but most of the swizzles in the New York Bartenders Guide leave it in.

This however is a Brandy Swizzle, which oddly isn't stirred in the glass but is shaken first and strained over fresh ice. I do recommend using the swizzle stick to give the drink a turn once you add the sparkling water. It needs a little attention.
  • 2 oz. brandy
  • 1 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • several dashes Angostura bitters (Hella aromatic used)
  • sparkling water
 Shake all ingredients except sparkling water with ice and strain over fresh ice in a Collins glass. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a swizzle stick.
