This refreshing introduction to the little known agave spirit, sotol, is made with lime, pineapple gomme syrup, and Angostura bitters. Don’t forget the crushed ice!

Start by crushing some ice, either using a Lewis bag or food processor. Crushed ice is a vital component of any swizzle.
Fill a highball glass halfway with crushed ice. Add the sotol, pineapple gomme syrup, and lime juice.
Time to swizzle! Rub the swizzle stick back and forth between your hands for 30 seconds, or until the outside of the glass becomes frosty. If you don’t have a swizzle stick use a bar spoon.
Fill your glass with more crushed ice. Top with Angostura bitters and garnish with a fresh sprig of mint and a wedge of pineapple.
