Pressgang Swizzle

Named Pressgang, “as it’s a ye olde nautical term for indenturing captured sailors into working on your ship,” according to Brooklyn barkeep Jeremy Oertel, this swizzle combines the sweeter Old Tom gin with a smattering of tiki-esque ingredients like Jamaican rum, fresh citrus, orgeat and ginger.

1 oz. Old Tom gin
1 oz. Jamaican rum
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. orgeat
1/4 oz. ginger syrup
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: pilsner
Garnish: 6 dashes each of Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a Pilsner glass and add crushed ice until it cones above the rim of the glass. Float Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters on top.
