The Lion´s Tail is a drink very much in the classic cocktail tradition from the Café Royal Cocktail Book published in London in 1937, acc. to Ted Haigh in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails. The perfect drink if you want to make use again of your Allspice Dram.


2 oz. Bourbon Whiskey, 3/4 oz. Allspice Dram (I took Pimento Dram from Bitter Truth), 1/2 oz. Lime juice, 1/2 TS Simple Syrup, 2 dashes Angostura Bitters


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
