Masataka Swizzle cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
