FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the overproof rum in a 151 Swizzle?

Yes, you can substitute the overproof rum in a 151 Swizzle with a regular dark rum if you prefer a less potent cocktail. Keep in mind that this will slightly alter the original flavor and reduce the alcohol content of the cocktail.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What are some garnishing tips for a 151 Swizzle?

A traditional garnish for a 151 Swizzle includes a sprig of mint and a dusting of grated nutmeg on top. For a more visually appealing presentation, you can also add a lime wheel or a slice of lime on the rim of the glass.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly mix a 151 Swizzle without shaking or stirring?

To properly mix a 151 Swizzle, use the swizzle stick method. Fill your glass with crushed ice, then add all ingredients. Insert a swizzle stick or a bar spoon and twirl it rapidly between your palms to mix the ingredients and chill the drink homogeneously.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of a 151 Swizzle compare to other cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 24.21%, the 151 Swizzle is considerably stronger than many classic cocktails due to the use of overproof rum. For example, it's higher in alcohol content than a Mojito or a Margarita but could be on a par or slightly less potent compared to other overproof rum cocktails.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a 151 Swizzle?

The best way to serve a 151 Swizzle is in a pint glass filled with crushed ice to ensure the cocktail remains cold. The mixture of the cocktail’s ingredients with the crushed ice, when swizzled properly, provides a refreshing and balanced drinking experience.
