Masataka Swizzle

Masataka Swizzle cocktail with Japanese whisky, amaretto, lemon juice, simple syrup, orange bitters, and aromatic bitters

The Masataka Swizzle popped up in the Bartenders’ Travelling Book, a hand-written manual traveling from bar to bar across the world, containing contributions from every mixologist who gets their hands on it. This recipe is from Stanislav Vadrna at Paparazzi in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Named for Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whiskey, the Masataka Swizzle is a beautifully smooth cocktail with rich, nutty flavors. The garnish of bitters is a nice touch – at first you smell them as you sip, and their spices melt gracefully into the drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a short glass, and top with crushed or pebble ice. Using a swizzle stick or a barspoon, swizzle the drink until the glass is frosty and a foamy head is formed. Add more ice if needed, and garnish with a sprig of mint and an extra dash of aromatic bitters.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
