1 1⁄2 oz Bourbon
1⁄4 oz Allspice Dram

Combine lemon and blackberries. Muddle. Add remaining ingredients. Shake. Serve in rocks glass over ice.


I wanted to name this drink after Lorena Wood, but I kept slipping up and saying Lorena Bobbit. We're a family restaurant, and that just wasn't going to fly, so I changed it.

Like the name and the concept of this drink.  I made a "version" of it with muddled dark brown sugar, plum bitters, and blackberries.  And just shook the lemon, bourbon, and honey syrup (no allspice dram on hand).  I was quite pleased with the way it turned out.  I really like drinks that turn out deep purple in color like this one did.
