Cocktail of the Week: Lion's Tail

Who is ready for a classic bourbon cocktail? This week, Queen Bee is shaking up a Lion's Tail. This traditional libation rose to popularity in the late 1930s and has been a beloved way to enjoy your favorite bourbon ever since. So, what do you say? Let's mix one up!


  • 2oz. Bourbon
  • 0.25oz. Allspice Dram
  • 0.50 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 0.50oz. Brown Sugar Simple Syrup
  • 2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters


  1. Add all ingredients to a beaker, ensuring to strain your fresh lime juice before pouring it in.
  2. Add ice and stir until chilled.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lime.

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.
