Tiki Drink: Lion’s Fang


I don’t have a lot of time right at the beginning of this year’s Tiki Month, but I wanted to get some content quickly out of the box. In the days leading up to this little blogvent, I start trying a lot of the recipes I’ve bookmarked since the last Tiki Month. I’ve been drinking a fair number of Lion’s Fangs for the last two weeks….

The Lion’s Tail is a classic bourbon cocktail that the PeguWife and I both love. It’s a drink I’ve been debating for a while about whether to include in a Tiki Month. In the end, I just didn’t think it is quite “Tiki” enough. The Lion’s Fang is a much more Tiki-Compliant riff from Chad Austin of Bootlegger Tiki. I actually find the Fang better than the Tail. And it is much more in the Tiki style.

LION’S FANG

  • 1 1/2 oz. Demerara rum (Hamilton’s)
  • 1 oz. bourbon (Wild Turkey 101)
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. falernum
  • 1/4 oz. Allspice Dram (St. Elizabeth)
  • 1/4 oz. Demerara syrup
  • 2 dash Angostura bitters
  • 6 drops absinthe (Pernod)

Shake all ingredients well. Strain into a low mug or old-fashioned glass with fresh, small ice. Garnish with something sharp and pointy.
