Queen's Park Swizzle | How to Drink



On this episode of How to Drink, I’m taking a look at making a Queen’s Park Swizzle. This is a drink invented at the Queen’s Park Hotel in Port au Spain Trinidad around the 1920’s. That sets this drink a bit earlier than the American Tiki Fad got underway, but it’s earned it’s place in the pantheon nonetheless. Referred to by Trader Vic as “the most delightful form of anesthesia given out today” it’s a refreshing and delicious drink you’d be certain to enjoy on any hot summer day. Cheers!

Queen’s Park Swizzle Ingredients:
– .5 oz or 14 ml Lime Juice
– .5 oz or 14 ml Demerara Syrup
– 2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
– 2 oz or 60 ml Blended Black Rum
– Swizzle over Crushed Ice
– Garnish with Sprig of Mint & Grenadine
