Twenty Seventy Swizzle

Twenty Seventy (2070) Swizzle rum cocktail recipe

Mixologist, cocktail historian, and tiki cheerleader Martin Cate documents the recipe for the Twenty Seventy Swizzle in his fantastic book Smuggler’s Cove, where he explains that the name came from the two rums he used: Angostura 1919 (a vanilla-tinged column-still aged rum) and the inimitable Lemon Hart 151, a fantastic overproof Demerara rum from Guyana.

There’s no need to restrict yourself to numerologically-correct rums, though – we’ve made it with a variety of aged and overproof Demerara rums, and each one somehow ends up tasting better than the last. That might be the 151 talking, though.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add everything (except the nutmeg), plus crushed ice, to a tall glass or tiki mug. Swizzle it to chill.

To swizzle, 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.

Top with additional crushed ice, if needed, and dust with fresh-grated nutmeg. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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!
