Also known as pimento dram, this is an allspice berry flavored liqueur; from the pimento tree. You can make your own! Here is a recipe from Serious Eats: Measure out 1/2 cup whole allspice berries, then crush them in a mortar and pestle or grinder. Place the crushed allspice in a sealable glass jar with 1 cup rum, steep for 4 days, shaking daily. On day 5, add 1 broken cinnamon stick. Let steep for 7 more days, after 12 total days of steeping, strain out the solids through a cheesecloth. Make a syrup by combining 1 1/2 cup water and 2/3 cup brown sugar, heat until it dissolves then add it to the alcholoic mix. Let rest for an additional day, and enjoy!

I love it when one of our regulars asks us to create a cocktail on the spot based on crazy criteria— and it's even better when we can pull off a decent drink on the first try. One night Avery Glasser, the man behind Bittermens bitters and one of the bar's original regulars, asked me to make him a drink that contained all of his favorite ingredients. The problem was that he likes a lot of weird s**t. But I gave it a shot, splitting both the base spirit and its modifiers, and it resulted in a surprisingly balanced drink. -Phil Ward
