Pimento Dram is a lovely ingredient. Made from the allspice berry, it's warm and strong and works with both sweet and savory flavor profiles. Christopher Columbus first encountered Allspice on the island of Jamaica, though it was used for centuries before by the locals.
This bright beauty is named for Bob Marley's Three Little Birds, and evokes the warm Caribbean sun in both taste and appearance.
The Bitter Truth makes a fine Pimento Dram, or you can create your own at home. Though a bottle of allspice liqueur is a bit of an indulgence, rest assured it will appear in more than one of our recipes (like our holiday hit, The Bing Crosby).
