"I was looking through older cocktail books, and saw a Wild Redhead, which had an awesome name but it was a really boring drink—just Cherry Heering and lemon juice," recalls Meaghan Dorman, the (red)head bartender at New York's Raines Law Room. She spiced it up with some allspice dram and blended Scotch, and the Wildest Redhead was born. More

DIY vs. Buy: Should I Make My Own Allspice Dram?

Drinks Marcia Simmons 1 comment

For years, allspice dram was damn-near impossible to find in the States. I get a little grumpy when there's a cocktail ingredient everyone is raving about and I can't find it anywhere. So a few years ago, just the mention of allspice dram made me a bit unpleasant to be around. I'd see recipes fun Tiki drinks and get all excited, then I'd see that allspice dram was one of the ingredients and I would mope like a sad puppy. More

Time for a Drink: Jasper's Jamaican

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 1 comment

Built similar to a daiquiri with a base of buttery Jamaican rum (though according to this guy, a Demerara rum from Guyana works equally well), Jasper's Jamaican is given a little shimmy by the addition of a touch of allspice liqueur. While impossible to find as recently as a year ago, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is lying around many well-stocked liquor stores. More
