Rum Swizzle

The Rum Swizzle is the Bermuda Triangle of all cocktails - it's easy to get lost in its sweet, tangy, and potent flavors!

The Rum Swizzle is a cocktail that originated in Bermuda, and it is considered a classic of the island’s drinking culture. The exact history of the drink is unclear, but it is believed to have been first created in the 19th century by Bermuda’s sailors.

The Rum Swizzle is a sweet and tangy cocktail that typically features dark rum, lime juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine syrup. It is traditionally made using a swizzle stick, which is a long, thin piece of wood or metal that is used to mix the drink and create a frothy texture.

The drink became popular in the early 20th century, and it was often served at social events and parties on the island. The Rum Swizzle is also closely associated with Bermuda’s hospitality industry, and many bars and restaurants on the island still offer their own unique variations of the drink.
