Pressgang Swizzle

Spicy tropicana.
1 oz Old Tom Gin
1 oz Jamaican rum
34 oz Lime juice
34 oz Grapefruit juice
12 oz Orgeat
14 oz Ginger syrup
6 ds Bitters, Angostura
6 ds Peychaud's Bitters
Shake all but the bitters with three ice cubes and strain into a pilsner glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice until it cones over the top. Garnish with the bitters.
This is the first drink I've posted that's not my own. I felt compelled because it's an excellent and extraordinary-looking drink and I wanted to share the photo. BTW, I crush ice by holding it in my hand and smacking it with a bar spoon, so the results are chunky and inconsistent.

  • Not as pretty a drink as I wanted it to be--cloudy beige with the bitters on top looking a little like a garnish knife accident. But this tastes quite good. Used Tanq OT and Smith & Cross. Nice mix of spicy and juicy. — ☆☆☆☆
