robert johnson swizzle

2 oz Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon (Larceny)
3/4 oz Otima 10 Year Tawny Port (Sandeman)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Vanilla Syrup

Build in a Collins glass, add crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Add 2 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters and 3 dash Peychaud's Bitters, and swizzle in to the top layer. Garnish with a mint sprig.
Two Sundays ago, I wrapped up the end of my work week by peering into the Death & Co. Cocktail Book for a recipe. There, I was drawn to the Swizzle section and found Brian Miller's 2009 tribute to American blues musician Robert Leroy Johnson. Once prepared, the Robert Johnson Swizzle shared a cinnamon, mint, and vanilla aroma. Next, lemon, malt, and grape on the sip gave way to Bourbon and complementary vanilla notes on the swallow.
