I made this with Becherovka for cinnamon syrup and Licor 43 for vanilla syrup. I doubled the Becherovka to help the cinnamon come through. It was a nice tiki cocktail, although using St Elizabeth Alspice Dram, I felt the allspice dominated. I'd cut it by at least half.

This is a Don the Beachcomber original from ca. 1937, not a Jeff Berry drink as listed here. We do have Berry to thank for decoding the recipe, however.

Fixed, thanks for the catch.
