This Rickey by herbalist and cocktail specialist Lukas B. Smith at Washington, D.C.’s Cotton & Reed showcases the rum distillery’s allspice dram. “The lime juice and soda water show off the lighter side of dram,” says Smith.


  • 1 1/2 ounces Cotton & Reed allspice dram
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • Soda water, chilled, to top
  • Garnish: lime wheel


  1. Add the dram and juice to a Collins glass over ice.

  2. Top with the soda water and stir gently and briefly to combine.

  3. Garnish with a lime wheel.
