Why not use a real swizzle stick made popular in Hawaii in the 1950s when the Tiki drink craze was just beginning? Made of 100% natural sugar cane that has been peeled and cut into thin strips measuring 7” tall. Also great as a skewer for fish and seafood on the grill. When using, put in a container with water to keep sticks moist. At the end of the evening, simply freeze or refrigerate unused sticks. Vacuum packed and good for one year. They are shelf stable at room temperature, and should be kept out of light. Each pack contains 20 sticks.
