Chartreuse Swizzle | Cocktail Party

Chartreuse Swizzle

The creator of this “improved” recipe over at kaiserpenguin.com insists on fresh pineapple juice for this, but we think it’s lovely even with the canned stuff. Traditionally, a “swizzle” drink is prepared with a swizzle stick, which had a paddle-shaped end and is spun between the palms. If you don’t have one of these tools, stirring with a barspoon will do just fine.

Ingredients

Instructions

Swizzle or stir with ice and strain into a glass nearly filled with crushed ice.

Garnish with a freshly-slapped sprig of mint near the straw, and grate a good deal of fresh nutmeg on top. Since the nutmeg is on top of the ice, it won’t be drunk; it’s purely for scent.
