A swizzle stick is a small stick used to hold fruit garnishes or stir drinks. The original swizzle sticks were created in the 1700s at a rum plantation in the West Indies. They were used to stir up Bermudian cocktails called Rum Swizzles and were made from the branch of a plant. In the late 1800s and early 1900s stir sticks made of glass were created to shake out the bubbles from champagne, whose carbonation caused indigestion for some drinkers.
