Classic Rum Swizzle Cocktail Recipe

Some say that to truly experience an authentic swizzle cocktail one must use a swizzle stick to swizzle the drink. What the hell, you may ask, is a swizzle stick? What is swizzling? A swizzle stick is just a branch from the Caribbean Swizzle tree. The act of swizzling is just mixing the drink with this stick by spinning it.

I find this entirely ridiculous. There is nothing this super rare wood only found in the Caribbean adds to the cocktail that my bar spoon can’t do.
