full sail swizzle

1 1/2 oz Appleton Rum
1/2 oz Becherovka
1/2 oz Ginger Syrup
1/2 oz Grenadine
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Build in a Pilsner glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with 3 dash Angostura Bitters and a plastic swizzle stick, and add a straw.
A few Wednesdays ago, I ventured down with Andrea to Highball Lounge where Matt Schrage and Babisa Adumbire were bartending. For a drink, I asked for the semi-secret Tiki secondary menu and requested the Full Sail Swizzle from Matt. Matt described how this was bartender Stephen Bookman's recipe and he did not know what was in the prebatched mix other than what was in the menu description. Since Stephen had already departed for Portland, Oregon, I sent him a message on Facebook and received the above recipe. In the glass, the Swizzle shared a clove and allspice aroma from the bitters garnish. Lime and the rum's caramel dominated the sip, and the swallow gave forth rum and a medley of spice notes including ginger, clove, and cinnamon.
