Swanky

 

Swanky (a.k.a. Rum Swanky)
 
A friend was telling me about a great tasting drink called a "Swanky".  Though not familiar with it, after hearing of its simple ingredients, I thought it would be a worthy "Featured Cocktail".  After a bit of research, I found that the drink is native to the Cayman Islands, and generally features Seven Fathoms Rum, a spirit that is actually aged in barrels... underwater.  Part of the unique flavor of the cocktail comes from using a Brown Sugar simple syrup.  Not being able to find the Seven Fathoms Rum, a blend of Spiced Rum and Dark Rum was used to bring our cocktail to life.  We hope you'll give it a try, our featured cocktail... Swanky.  Bottoms up Wes!
 
 
Ingredients
 
1.5 oz. Spiced Rum
1.5 oz. Dark Rum
2.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2.5 oz. Brown Sugar Simple Syrup (Boil equal parts Brown Sugar and water).
Lime Wheel for garnish

You can add a bit of Club Soda or Sprite to lighten the drink (if desired).

 
 
Directions
 
Combine all of the ingredients into an ice filled cocktail Collins glass.  Give it a good stir, insert a long straw, garnish accordingly, and get ready to get... Swanky.  Cheers!  Please drink responsibly.  Thanks!
