West India Swizzle
This is an old-fashioned Cocktail, simple to make and very popular in the West Indies. Use large mixing glass, I wineglass of Gin, Whisky, Brandy or Rum (see page 8), as preferred. 3 or 4 generous dashes of Angostura Bitters. ^ to I teaspoonful of Syrup, as preferred. Pour these into mixing glass,add a little more than an equal quantity of cold water or cracked ice and, with a swizzle-stick, swizzle to a froth. Serve in a CocktaU glass or small tumbler. If ice is used, add also a little water. In this way the foam is created more qmckly and is more lasting. "SWIZZLE-STICKS" In the West Indies the Cocktail described above is mixed by the swizzle-stick method. The swizzle-stick (illustrated alongside)is a natural product of the West Indies. It consists of the dried stem of a plant having radiating branches. When the stem is twirled rapidly between the palms of the hands the forked branch- ends induce a perfect mixture ofdrinks. If preferred, this Cocktail can be served i.e., not swizzled but well stirred. ' still,'
