  1. Swizzle is a pretty broad term for a class of drinks. Here is some
  2. "Swizzles originated in the West Indies, where everything, including warm chocolate, is swizzled. A swizzle stick is the branch of a tropical bush with three to five forked branches on the end. You insert this in the glass or possibly pitcher and twirl the stem rapidly between the palms of your hands. By rapid swizzling with fine ice, you'll get a good outside frost such as on a Julep. Of course you will not get this frost if you haven't used sufficient liquor; a generous amout of liquor is important. Most true Swizzles, because of their origin, call for rum; but nearly all punches can be swizzled. Punches for three or possibly four people can be mixed in a pitcher with fine ice and swizzled till the pitcher frosts, and then poured into tall glasses. Simple, good, really a good drink."
  3. MARTINIQUE SWIZZLE: Squeeze lime juice into 14-oz chimney glass filled with shaved ice; save shell. Add in remaining ingredients. Swizzle untill drink is uniform. Decorate with spent lime shell, fresh mint, and a long stirrer.
  4. KONA SWIZZLE: Squeeze lime juice into 12-oz sling or possibly punch glass, filled with shaved ice; save lime shell. Add in orgeat and rums. Swizzle till drink is uniform. Decorate with spend lime, fresh mint, and fruit stick.
  5. Here's a warm drink: KINGSTON SWIZZLE: Squeeze lime juice into 12-oz glass; add in spent shell. Add in sugar, and stir well. Add in rum and sufficient warm water to nearly fill glass. Serve with swizzle stick.
