spiced park swizzle

1 oz Rhum Agricole (Vale d' Paul Aguardente Nova de Santo Antão)
1 oz Amontillado Sherry (Lustau)
1/2 oz Falernum (BG Reynolds)
1/2 oz Ginger Liqueur (King's)
1 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Simple Syrup

Build in a tall glass, fill with ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with 5 dashes Angostura Bitters.
After returning from working the bar at Loyal Nine's Yacht Rock Sunday two weeks ago, I was still in the tropical mood. Therefore, I reached for Tiki Drinks: Tropical Cocktails for the Modern Bar and found the Spiced Park Swizzle. Once built, the drink offered mint, clove, and cinnamon aromas. Next, lime and grape flavors on the sip transitioned into grassy rum and nutty notes on the swallow. Finally, the Spice Park Swizzle ended with ginger and clove on the finish, and once the bitters garnish entered into the equation at the end, clove and cinnamon became dominant.

Sherry and rhum agricole seems like an interesting combination. And really perfect choice for the garnish on this one.
