A love story dedicated to the bitter and strong flavors of Jamaican pimento dram, this allspice and pepper-forward drink can be best enjoyed year-round, as the balanced and intricate flavors make it perfect for any occasion.
A moderate citrus tang with smoked Demerara syrup combine to satisfy your palette, while the romantic notes of cacao in Angel’s Envy bourbon and Xocolatl Mole bitters add poise and depth to an already sophisticated mixture. The Hamilton Pimento Dram blends spice, anise and Jamaican rum to conclude this drink, leaving you with a bold but polished finish.
Once completed, the complex and thoughtful marriage of cultures inside the Hamilton’s Envy offers a unique and rich experience while staying true to familiar cocktails.
