One of the great forgotten cocktail ingredients, allspice dram (sometimes called pimento dram), is experiencing a revival. Here it is in a classic cocktail made with bourbon and fresh lime juice.


  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce allspice dram
  • Garnish: orange peel


  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake for 10 to 15 seconds.

  2. Strain into a coupe or cocktail glass.

  3. Lightly express the oil from an orange peel over top.
