Evergreen Swizzle Cocktail

The swizzle, a style of cocktail utilizing crushed ice, typically made with rum and given a good mixing with a swizzle stick, is a perfect drink for the approaching Summer. In this swizzle, Jamie utilizes Edinburgh Gin, a new gin on the market. With wonderful floral tones and resounding pine notes, it is the perfect gin for the Evergreen Swizzle.


1 1/2 oz Edinburgh Gin

1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse

Zirbenz Pine Liqueur

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz simple syrup


shake with ice

strain over crushed ice in a Collins glass

garnish with rosemary sprig

serve with straw

This is an excellent cocktail for summer! Had to sub a few things and it still came out great.. Didn’t have the edinburgh yet in Nashville, TN so I used Deaths Door, which has a similar pine character. In lieu of Yellow Chartreuse, I dropped it down to 1/4 oz of Green as the green is just a bit richer than yellow and I felt it would lend a great green color to the cocktail, and in lieu of the Zirbenz pine, I substituted 1/2 oz of Clear Creek Douglis Fir Eau de Vie, a bit easier to find.

Ugh! So many ingredients I can’t get in Canada! Hahaha! But very inspiring, I haven’t tried making any swizzles before. I’ll use this as a jumping point! Thanks, Jaime.
