151 Swizzle

Created by Don The Beachcomber.

To ‘swizzle’ is to make a drink in a specific fashion. Caribbean Swizzle is a classic way to present a mixture of overproof Rum, lime, sugar, bitters, and optional flavoring and spices. The process allows a healthy dilution of the mixture which is a great approach when using higher proof spirits. You add all your ingredients to your glass, top with crushed ice, then grab your Swizzle Stick. Instert it donw to the bottom of the glass and swizzle spin it back and forth in your hand while rising up the glass. Repeating this will mix, dilute, and chill your drink.

The 151 Swizzle is the creation of Don The Beachcomber who specifically seemed to want to showcase a legendary high proof Demerara Rum. He also made it unique with his signature 6 drops of Absinthe. While you can swizzle anything, best to start by following Don’s advice.


1 ½ oz Demerara 151 Rum

½ oz Lime Juice

½ oz Simple Syrup

⅛ oz Absinthe

3 dashes Aromatic Bitters


Frappe/Dump top with Crushed Ice into Highball or Collins glass.

Garnish with Fresh Nutmeg

Optional prep: Swizzle
