1878 American and other drinks
AMERICAN AND OTHER DRINKS.
It occurred to the Author of this little work,after a conversation with an Indian gentleman, to make a cocktail called in India a Swizzle. Take a small tumbler, half fill it with chipped ice; then add one and a half liqueur glasses of Bolter's bitters; half a wine glass of brandy; and two or three drops of Noyeau to flavour and sweeten it. Now swizzle this concoction, with an Indian cane swizzle, to a froth; drink through a strainer. Tastes differ. An Indian likes a cocktail swizzled; a North American, within the last few years, will not take one unless it is stirred with a spoon; a South American will have it shaken; an Englishman, who has travelled in America, is more particular than any one of the others until you find out his taste, and is most difficult to please.
