Sailor Jerry Rum

Swizzles, named after the sticks used to produce rum in the Caribbean, have been savored for more than 200 years and finally, Sailor Jerry’s Paul Monahan gave this classic a tiki makeover. His take is rich in spicy anise bitters, a dark red wine from Portugal that’s often paired with dessert and yes, more rum.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
