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.This recipe first appeared in Season 1 of Good Eats: The Return.
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.
