The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess
Lion’s Tail Cocktail
The cocktail resurgence has brought with a it a resurgence in previously hard-to-find products. One of these once forgotten concoctions is Pimento (Allspice) Dram. "In larger doses, pimento dram contributes a richness to a drink evocative of autumn fruits and baking spices. In the drips and dashes with which it is typically deployed, however, the liqueur plays a much more subtle role," writes Paul Clarke of CocktailChronicles.com. That is definitely the case in the Lion's Tail Cocktail; a little goes a long way in transforming a cocktail and adding nuanced flavor.
