Clove Smoker

This earthy concoction is perfect for sipping near the fire. Allspice dram, an allspice liqueur, gives the Clove Smoker its distinct flavor–it captures the holidays without being trite. Brown combines the allspice dram with Batavia arrack, a Southeast Asian spirit, and aperitif wines Cocchi Americano and Bonal Gentiane- Quina.

*For an extra wintery spin, Brown says to omit the egg white and add eggnog instead (Traders Point Creamery in Zionsville makes a local option).



Shake all ingredients and fine strain into a chilled, but iceless, highball glass.
