The Dead Rabbit’s Lion’s Tail

Jack McGarry, The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog | New York

“We added [the Lion’s Tail] to our Vol.1 as it was a historical classic,” recalls McGarry. “We wanted to breathe new life into it.” And he does, revamping every aspect of the classic version except the lime juice and the allspice dram.
