newmarket swizzle

2 oz Bully Boy White Rum
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup

Build in a Collins glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with 3-4 dashes Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters and add a straw.

After Island Creek Oyster Bar, we headed next door for drinks at the Hawthorne. There, bartender Dan Lynch greeted us and I requested a Newmarket Swizzle. The Swizzle was created by Katie Emmerson featuring Bully Boy's white rum, and the drink was named by Matt Schrage after the neighborhood that the Bully Boy Distillery resides, namely Newmarket Square in Boston.
The Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters garnish in conjunction with the cinnamon syrup contributed a very spiced aroma to the drink. The sip was full of lime notes with a hint of cinnamon, and the swallow began with rum and pineapple flavors followed by most of the cinnamon notes from the syrup.

I wonder if I could sub Lamb's white for the Bully Boy...

Bully Boy's white rum is definitely a rum but it's not overly flavorful, so any light white rum would sub well. The only ones that I can think of that would turn the drink a very different direction would be J.Wray, rhum agricoles, and a few others.
