We hope you have a wonderful holiday season. If you're out and about, stop by the liquor store and pick up a bottle of allspice dram - Christmas in a glass! Below is our recipe for the very satisfying Winter cocktail, the Bear Paw. We served it for Una Mae's Boutique party recently and it was a big hit.
1 1/2 oz Bourbon or Rye
1/2 oz Allspice Dram
1/2 oz Brown Sugar Simple Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon
Shake all on ice and strain into a coupe glass or in an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with bitters.
Notes: Allspice dram is easy to make, but it takes a good month. We used the recipe from the Cocktail Chronicles here, but St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is delicious and straight from the source (Jamaica).
