Swizzle is a pretty broad term for a class of drinks. Here is some information and recipes from from Trader Vics Bartenders Guide: "Swizzles originated in the West Indies, where everything, including hot chocolate, is swizzled. A swizzle stick is the branch of a tropical bush with three to five forked branches on the end. You insert this in the glass or pitcher and twirl the stem rapidly between the palms of your hands. By rapid swizzling with fine ice, youll get a good outside frost such as on a Julep. Of course you wont get this frost if you havent used enough liquor; a generous amout of liquor is important. Most true Swizzles, because of their origin, call for rum; but nearly all punches can be swizzled. Punches for three or four people can be mixed in a pitcher with fine ice and swizzled until the pitcher frosts, and then poured into tall glasses. Simple, good, really a good drink."
