All Spice and Everything Nice

All Spice and Everything Nice is a citrusy remix of the Lion’s Tail, an old bourbon cocktail that features the heady, exotic flavor of allspice dram.

Darnell Holguin at Fifty in New York City took the classic recipe and lengthened it with extra citrus (lemon instead of lime, here), swapped out the aromatic bitters for orange, and used honey syrup in place of simple (a formal codification of a typical substitute in the Lion’s Tail).

The result is a touch more drinkable than the original, with a more muted allspice flavor coming through on a fresh, bright cloud of lemon and honey.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a few whole cloves, if you’ve got ’em – we like to press the cloves into a strip of lemon peel or half a lemon slice, so that they don’t inadvertently get slurped up with the drink.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
