Paul's Swizzle

1 12 oz Dark rum, Flor de Caña 7 (7 year old)
12 oz Cynar
12 oz Aperol
12 oz Lemon juice
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
2 oz Ginger beer, Barritt's
Instructions
Stir all ingredients except Barritt's with ice in a shaker. Strain into a Collins glass full of crushed ice. Swizzle for 15 seconds, top with Barritt's and stir in gently.
Notes
Meant to extend both the sweetness of the Barritt's (rum and Cynar) and the citrus aspect (Aperol and Lemon).
From other users
  • An gentle introduction to Italian amari (bitter liqueurs) in a dark and somewhat stormy context. I could not bring myself to swizzle the carbonated drink for 30 seconds, so I mixed gently. — ☆☆☆☆
