I meant to say Master Blenders' Legacy. We already get Reserve. Is Legacy coming in February?

No word on Master Distillers. Reserve is not yet in the CA market, so Feb. for us on that.

Ladies & Gents! Murray Xmas to you all! I'm writing a Pimento Dram column for the Feb/March issue of Imbibe, and how could I do that without one of my infrequent but always pleasurable sojourns to Tiki Central!?

Just a little something by way of HOPE for your Christmas stockings....not only will the aforementioned fine rum be available in February, but also a new commercially made pimento dram which, in a nod to all of our concerns over the marketability of the name, will be termed "Allspice Dram." It will hit CA & NY stores mid-month according to our benefactor, Eric Seed. Martin is in on this too, so he may have more guidance, but having just had an 30 minute conversation with Eric about it, I just wanted to share the cheer!

Peace & goodwill,
--Doc.

That's excellent news Dr Haigh. If I had to name one ingredient that's had the most dramatic impact on tiki drinks I've made over the last year, it would have to be my homemade pimento dram (using your recipe). Can you tell us who is making it so we can be on the lookout and pester our local liquor stores to stock it?

Here's what to look for:




"From its origins in the tropical hills and valleys of Jamaica, the allspice berry has for generations been prized for its exceptional tastes of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg and a pepper note that dazzles the palate. The allspice liqueur, known in classic cocktails as "Pimento Dram," brings together the fine pot-still rum and classic allspice berries of Jamaica. Enjoy St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram in classic cocktails, Wassail and other punches, mulled wine, continental and island cuisine. 22.5% Alc./Vol. 375ml. "

Made by Haus Alpenz.

I've been to Jamaica many times. Now that you can't bring back booze on plane I came up with my own recipe for Pimento Dram. Email me and I'll forward it to you. SSOINTOYOU@msn.com

Because I keep lots of Jamaican/ Caribbean recipes on my computer. Much easier than typing out. You may get lucky and get more you'll love. I can cook as well as drink hardy.

Why make more work for yourself? Don't email it multiple times when you can just post it once.

If it's really on your computer, you can just copy and paste it, right here.

Or if that's too difficult to figure out, just send me a PM with the recipe and I'll do the posting.

Pimento Dram

1 cup allspice berries *
freshly ground nutmeg to taste *
2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice - Not bottled!
1 quart Appleton white rum
1/4 pound cinnamon sticks *
2 quarts water
4 pounds sugar

Place allspice berries, grated nutmeg, fresh lime juice and rum in a crock and let stand for 3 days in a cool dark space. Crack the cinnamon sticks and boil in the 2 quarts of water. Remove the sticks and bring water back to a full boil over medium heat. Add the sugar and continue to boil for about 10 minutes to produce a cinnamon sugar syrup. Let cool on stove top.
Meanwhile remove the allspice berries from the rum mixture. Add the cooled cinnamon syrup and strain into a large glass decanter with spigot if possible. (I got one at Target). Cover and store in a cool place for at least a month an preferably longer before using. Serve as you would a fine cordial. Gets better with age. Enjoy!

**** I ORDER ALL THE SPICES FROM PENZEYS ONLINE. MUCH FRESHER AND CHEAPER TOO!

Look for it at the usual suspects:

Ledgers Liquors - Berkeley
John Walker & Sons - San Francisco
Plumpjack (Noe Valley) - San Francisco
Beltramos - Menlo Park
Weimax - Burlingame

On track for the end of February.

I think you're really going to like this spirit- it's much different than Berry Hill. Let's just call it more "pure". I'll get into more later when it comes on line.

As an aside, look for the Dr. Cocktail himself in a cameo in the movie Superbad. Playing a bartender, natch.
