Swizzle Français

Swizzle Français cocktail with aged rhum agricole, allspice dram, lime, and simple syrup

The Swizzle Français is the creation of none other than Martin Cate, the man behind the Smuggler’s Cove tiki revival restaurant and the cocktail book of the same name. It’s a simple recipe, but it’s bursting with the flavors of the rum islands: grassy sugarcane rhum agricole (preferably aged), tart lime, and the multilayered piquancy of allspice dram.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add everything (except the nutmeg), plus crushed ice, to a tall glass or tiki mug. Place a swizzle stick or barspoon in the ice, and roll the stem between your palms to gently whisk, moving and and down in the glass until mixed and well-chilled. Top with additional crushed ice, if needed, and dust with fresh-grated nutmeg. Garnish with a mint sprig and a wedge or wheel of lime.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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.
