Twenty Seventy Swizzle

Twenty Seventy Swizzle

Ingredients
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz Demerara 2:1 simple syrup
1/2 oz honey syrup (1 part honey/1 part water)
1/4 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
4 drops Pernod
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Pinch fresh ground nutmeg
1 oz Angostura 1919 Rum
1 oz Lemon Hart 151 Demerara Rum

Crafting
Build it in the serving glass (Collins). 
Add all ingredients to glass, fill with crushed ice and swizzle with (ideally) a lele from Martinique, or the back of a bar spoon, until it starts to frost. 
Top up with additional ice as needed.  Wrap a cocktail napkin around the glass.
Extra points for figuring out where the name comes from.

Anecdotes
"The Twenty Seventy Swizzle was born of a night of experimentation.  I was sitting with one of my best regulars, Ron Roumas, at the bar and I said I wanted to craft a great swizzle based on my favorite parts of other swizzles, like the Queen's Park and the 151 Swizzle.  This is what we came up with.  Its pays homage to the Queen's Park by using Angostura bitters and rum, plus some Demerara rum from their neighbor to the south, Guyana.  Spices are both Caribbean and Tiki inspired." - Martin Cate, Smuggler's Cove
