Maloney Park Swizzle

The Patterson House was one of my favorite spots in Nashville, with its pre-prohibition themed dark woodsy interiors, extremely long bar, and old-fashioned cocktails crafted by James Hensley. Here is his very own version of an antiquated favorite.

For one cocktail

1 oz Matusalem Classico

1 oz Brugal Anejo

3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice

3/4 oz Simple Syrup

7 drops Angostura Bitters

3 Mint Sprigs + additional for Garnish

Dash Peychaud’s Bitters

Build in the glass. Place 3 torn mint sprigs and 7 drops of Angostura Bitters in a Collins glass. Tap lightly with muddler and the pull mint up the sides of the glass. Add liquid. Swizzle briefly. Add crushed ice. Swizzle (move ice around in glass to form nice ice layer on outside of glass). Top with crushed ice. Garnish. Float Peychaud’s Bitters.
