St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram Rum
St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is a traditional preparation made with smoky Jamaican pot-still rum. It boasts intricate notes of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper, infusing a delightful warmth into every sip. Its versatility shines through in classic rum punches and iconic concoctions like the Lion’s Tail, where it harmonizes gracefully with bourbon. Furthermore, it lends a captivating touch of sweet and invigorating spice to stirred libations, enhancing the overall flavor profile.
While in Jamaican homes, allspice dram usually lives in the kitchen as a flavoring, the pioneers of tiki drinks in the 1940s immediately seized on its ability to add spice and dryness to drinks with many juices and syrups. Today, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is one of the most versatile ingredients in the modern cocktail bar. It adds sweet, warming spice notes to stirred drinks without excess sugar or bitterness. In drinks that require extra sweetness for texture (cream, egg, coffee, or toddy-style drinks), St. Elizabeth adds an important drying aromatic that doesn’t affect the drink’s texture. It also shines as an ingredient in a meat marinade (it makes for an easy jerk chicken with superb caramelization), a finishing spice for a curry, or splashed into whipped cream for a dessert.
