Allspice Dram

Allspice dram in snifters
ACTIVE TIME: 25 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 10 days 25 minutes
Yield: 1 quart
It's about time modern mixology reintroduced allspice dram, a rum-based liqueur that brings a lot of flavor to the party. I drink it straight up or as a component of holiday cocktails.
How does it taste? Like winter baked goods by a warm fire ... with a kick.

Procedure

  • Heat a heavy skillet over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Toast the allspice berries until fragrant, about 1 minute, then roughly crush.
  • Combine the rum and crushed allspice berries in a quart-sized glass jar, seal the lid tightly and give it a good shake. Steep for 10 days.
  • Strain the allspice-infused rum through a fine-mesh sieve into a small saucepan and add the sugar. Heat over low, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is fully dissolved, about 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature before storing in a glass jar or bottle.
