Shondor’s Swizzle

A supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ly fun word to say: swizzle. Say it three times fast. I don’t know who Shondor is – but the name makes me think of a genie in a bottle or on a flying carpet, like Aladdin. High-end bourbon whiskey cocktails make me have impishly lofty thoughts. Drinks with honey make me happy, like Winnie the Pooh. Swizzle me that, please Mr. Bartender. Swizzle, swizzle, swizzle.

2 oz          Cleveland Whiskey Black Reserve Bourbon
2/3 oz      Velvet Falernum
