About this Cocktail

Was searching for a christmas drink replacement after Sorel liqueur disappeared off the market. Found this drink on Food and Wine:

The classic pairing for allspice dram is rum—rum is the liqueur’s base, after all. Here, we're presenting that pairing in a classic sour—citrus, sugar and egg white. We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Don't be afraid of the egg; it adds a light, silken texture, but you don't taste it at all.

  • 1.5 allspice dram
  • .5 rum
  • .5 lemon juice
  • .5 lime juice
  • .5 simple syrup
  • Egg white
  • 1 dash angostura bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters

n a cocktail shaker WITHOUT ice, combine 1 1/2 ounces allspice dram, 1/2 ounce aged rum, 1/2 ounce lemon juice, 1/2 ounce lime juice, 1/2 ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and hot water) and a dash of Angostura and orange bitters, if you have them. Crack in one fresh egg white. Shake that all up hard without ice—it's called a dry shake, and it helps to fluff up that egg white—then add ice and shake again. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange triangle and brandied cherries.
