Geek Drink of the Week: Samhain
I promised I’d share a drink which includes Allspice Dram this week. Hopefully your dram is finished or almost ready to sample. It should taste super autumny. That’s the great thing about allspice; it’s cinnamon-y, nutmeg-y, and just a little clove-y. And it smells amazing!
Back to the drink. I’ve had a little fun with this one. It includes Tang. Not prepared Tang, just the powder. You are free to substitute 1/2 oz orange juice if you’re not a Tang person.
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz Allspice Dram
1 tsp Tang powder
1/2 oz grenadine
Fill a shaker with ice, vodka, allspice dram, and Tang*. Shake it like it’s a Yoohoo. Strain into a cocktail glass. Gently pour in grenadine. You may want to take this one slowly since there’s not a lot of mixer in this drink. It tastes like Halloween and smells like Thanksgiving. You can sip Samhain all autumn long.
*Add orange juice at this point if substituting.
