Queen’s Park Swizzle Cocktail

The traditional version of this Trinidad swizzle is made with the dark, smoky caramel tones of Demerara rum; the 80-proof bottling from Lemon Hart is recommended, and the Demerara rums from El Dorado are also wonderful. In 1946, none other than Trader Vic himself, apostle of rum, dubbed it "the most delightful form of anesthesia given out today."
