Our Favorite Falernum Cocktails

From fizzes and classic swizzles to contemporary cocktails and punches, these recipes showcase the spicy sweetness of falernum—one of the cocktail world’s best supporting characters.

Chartreuse Swizzle
Few modern cocktails are as iconic—and delicious—as the Chartreuse Swizzle. Here’s how to make the San Francisco classic.

Esplanade Swizzle
Nutty sherry and earthy mezcal make this drink a departure from the typical rum-based swizzles.

Heaven is a Place/This is the Place
This tropical delight from Lost Lake (our Imbibe 75 Cocktail Bar of the Year) has the perfect balance of spice and fruit.

Juke Cup
Cucumber and ginger beer make this falernum cocktail one-of-a-kind.

Landing Gear Fizz
With Punt e Mes, lime juice and sherry, this highball is also low-proof.

It’s a pirate’s life, and for added complexity, Austin’s Adam Bryan floats a healthy dash of blackstrap rum on top.

Baker Street Swizzle
Absinthe and fresh mint add extra aromatics to this refreshing swizzle recipe.

Ode to Viceroy
This 50’s-inspired Scotch cocktail from The Mercury in Atlanta is perfectly balanced, with falernum, ginger and lime juice rounding out the mix.

Spring Street Swizzle Punch 
Two kinds of rum anchor this tropical tipple, which also plays host to orange and pineapple juice.
