n.— «We made up some “swizzle”—that time-honored Vermont concoction for hot outdoor work. It’s actually awful. It was soon replaced by my own formula, generally referred to as “sozzle,” available in a ready-to-drink form from our friends at the Schlitz company. Without sozzle, I don’t think I could have gotten in a crop.» —“Summer is for leisure” by Jeff Danziger Rutland Herald (Vt.) June 19, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
