Thanks guys! And Bev Mo it is. Now I've got everything to make every drink in the Grog Log!

I'm usually pretty disappointed with Bev Mo...I called to see if they had any Lemon Hart Demerera rum, sadly they had no idea what I was talking about...ugh!

Today, I walked into the Bevmo in La Quinta and asked the following, "Do you have Falernum?"

Cashier: No, what's that?

Me: It's a cordial... kind of like a sweetner. Let's try this... Do you carry any Fee Brothers products"

Cashier: Ah, no, of course not.

Me: Really?

Cashier: Why would we?

Me: Seriously, this is a liquor store, right?

Cashier: Yes....

Me: Okay, I'll go out on a limb. Do you have any Pimento Dram?

Cashier: (strange look)

Me: Okay, it's an allspice cordial

Cashier: Oh, you'll never find any of those things here in the Coachella Valley. They don't make those things.

Me: Sure they do. I usually buy my Falernum at Jenson's but since I'm here, I thought I'd take a look here.

Cashier: Let me get the manager.

Manager: Ah, they don't make those things anymore.

Me: Really, hmmm, you know they're on your website.

Manager: Really?

Me: Let me take a look around.

Manager follows me. He seems concerned.

Me: See, here is the Falernum and my.... Here is the St. Elizabeth Allspice.

Manager: I've never seen these things before.

Needless to say, I need some LSD to find my way back to reality.

Seriously, I am so tired of neophytes telling me I am an idiot and need to listen to the common sense of the crowd.

On that note, I think I'll get some vodka, put it in the freezer, then put it in a glass and call it a martini.

I've got some. It's pretty good but you'll need to go easy with it as it can be over powering.

I've just bought a bottle, so the 'heads up' on it's potency is welcomed...

I bought mine from
www.thewhiskyexchange.com - not sure about their shipping policies (although I know that they definately ship to mainland Europe)

Hello guys,

As a matter of fact, I am making some right now ...my process is a bit longer soak (a month), and aging should be a year in a dark place... Anyone interested, its $20 US for plus shipping from Jamaica.. Let me know about peppers, crushed peppers, and anything Jamaican..(we even have agates here...)

I brought some Bitter Truth about a year ago - I second the above opinion, not good stuff! I didn't successfully mix it any which way - too overpowering.

I just home make some -
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/02/diy-allspice-dram-make-your-own-st-elizabeths-pimento-dram-recipe.html?ref=search

Works every time! Maybe Saint Elizabeth or TONYJAs is better, but this works for me.

PS: In terms of actual drinks using pimento dram there's only 6 Beachbum Berrys recipes so IMO you don't need to go overboard making huge bottles, scale it down to about 4oz total when you make some & just remake when you need it.

I have the St. Elizabeth and it's strong, but seems to do the job. I hardly ever use it.

I gave up making dram when St. Elizabeth became available locally, and I quite like it but it also has a very intense flavor and I usually cut the amount by at least 50% when doing Beachbum recipes. I finally got smart and put some in a bitters dasher so I can easily dash small amounts into cocktails. I do the same thing with Pernod too, instead of getting out the eyedropper to measure out 6 drops at a time for all those old Donn Beach recipes calling for Herbsaint/Pernod

After Bitter Truth pimento dram I learnt 'if you don't use a lot, don't buy a big bottle unless you know you like it'. I'm surprised Bitter Truth even put out their pimento dram - ill try Saint Elizabeth's one day but my home-made works well so why would I change?

Good idea tho - i have a separate smaller bottle with a dropper with Pernod in it it'd probably work with pimento dram too!

navy grog is the only drink i regularly make calling for pimento dram, i use 1/4 oz of the St Elizabeth's.

I have a 1/8 teaspoon that I equate to 6-8 drops of Pernod et al...

Try Three Dots & A Dash?

If you don't like / have rhum agricole sub it for something lighter (bajan?) - Damn tasty!

Or Ancient Mariner? (I'm not such a fan of that one)

Make a punch & add a bit of pimento, make a daiquiri with jamaican rum & sub the sugar for pimento dram...

Im definitely a pimento dram fan!
