Our comment:

A heavily Allspice Dram liqueur influenced, Daiquiri-like, bourbon-based cocktail.

History:

Adapted from a recipe that first appeared in Café Royal Cocktail Book, published in London in 1937. However, the drinks creator is likely to have been an American bartender driven to London by Prohibition. "Twisting the lion's tail" was an American slang expression for provoking the British which emerged during the period of American Anglophobia between the World Wars.
