Coffey Park Swizzle

from Death & Co

  • 1 ounce Barbancourt 3-Star Rum
  • 1 ounce Lustau Amontillado Sherry
  • .25 ounce Velvet Falernum
  • .75 ounce Lime Juice
  • .75 ounce Ginger Syrup
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Sprig of Mint (Garnish)

Whip all the ingredients (except the bitters), shaking with a few pieces of crushed ice just until incorporated. Strain into a pilsner glass filled with crushed ice. Swizzle until cold. Add the bitters and swizzle them into the top of the drink. Garnish with the mint sprig and serve with a straw.

ALEX DAY, 2008 This was the first of many sherry cocktails I've created. It's my tribute to the Queen's Park Swizzle, the most classic drink in the category.—AD
