1⁄4 oz Virgin Islands Rum, Cruzan Blackstrap
1⁄4 oz Bitters, Angostura
3⁄4 oz Hibiscus Liqueur, FruitLab
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
3⁄4 oz Egg white

Dry shake, wet shake, strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish.


Lime juice also works well if you want a slightly more tart, less sweet option.
St. Elizabeth and Hamilton are considerably sweeter than The Bitter Truth pimento dram, so if using those you'd probably need to use lime and up the citrus to 1 oz.

  • Very heavy on the allspice dram but works well. Lime improves things over lemon.
