The Assumption Swizzle has not yet appeared in a collection:
juice of 2 lemons
2 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, heated till sugar dissolves, then cooled to room temperature)
4 oz. light rum
6 oz. blue Curacao
Pour lemon juice, syrup, rum, and Curacao into tall quart-sized glass pitcher filled with crushed ice. Add seltzer to fill the pitcher. Swizzle with palm frond or wooden cooking fork until frost forms on the outside of pitcher. Pour into four cold, tall, 8 oz. glasses and serve immediately on the verandah. The blue recalls our Lady, the rising bubbles signify her Assumption -- but drink only for cheer, lest it lead you to sin, and drink only one, lest it lead you to dormition.
Wooster would be pleased, and Jeeves would be busy
Tom at Disputations has waaaay too many recipes for an alcoholic beverage called a "Green Swizzle." I'm not planning on linking to recipes as a general rule (I'd much rather just print them here) but I think Tom (glug glug) may have (glug glug) kind of a (glug glug) problem, if you know what I mean. Plus, this way this thing doesn't turn into "The St. Blog's Bartenders Guide." (Which actually sounds like another good idea. But I only have so many hours in the day to screw around.)
All of which is a long-winded way of saying: go here for "Green Swizzle" recipes from Tom "Glug Glug" Kreitzberg.
Thanks to my sister ...
...for this recipe, which she says will put me right off to sleep tonight, despite my sniffles:
1 ounces Whiskey
1 ounce Honey
ounce Lemon Juice
3 ounces Water (Hot)
If you have a microwave, the easiest way to make this drink is to warm the honey and lemon juice for about half a minute and then to add hot water and the whiskey. Otherwise, stir the honey and lemon juice into extremely warm water, allow it to cool slightly, and add the whiskey.
