Queen's Park Swizzle

My theme this week has been on vintage tiki based drinks and another one you'll love is called Queen's Park Swizzle. This was invented back in 1946 in Trinidad with plenty of Guyanese Rum that makes it cool and refreshing drink for summer. You don't have to go to a tiki bar to have one, I've provided the recipe for you and it could also be found at some vintage style cocktail bars in Los Angeles, Orange County or from my acquaintance Matt Robold who runs the website Try it and let me know how you like it.
