The long, tropical Southside Swizzle has become a feature at our King’s Cross bar.
This version is traditionally a sour-sweet mojito-like cocktail on rum, and instead uses gin and a homemade green mango syrup.
Like bumps, swizzles consist of five key ingredients and are served in tall glasses with lots of crushed ice. They take their name from the swizzle stick and the process of stirring or stirring the drink with ice.
You can throw a long, slender spoon to hiss if you do not have a whip at home.

If you do not have ice, wrap a few ice cubes in a clean kitchen towel and give it a few pieces with a heavy rolling pin or meat hammer. Once crushed, place in a refrigerated bowl.
Pour all the ingredients into a large Collins or sling glass and add crushed ice until the glass is half full.
Drizzle (or stir) lightly with a long spoon for five seconds.
Cover with crushed ice to create a dome over the glass and garnish with a sprig of mint and a pinch of ground cinnamon.
