Allspice dram is a type of liqueur made from allspice berries, also known as Jamaican pepper or pimento. It is a popular ingredient in many Caribbean and tropical cocktails, as well as in desserts and baked goods.
To make allspice dram, allspice berries are soaked in high-proof rum for several weeks, along with other spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The resulting infusion is sweetened with sugar syrup and often distilled to increase the alcohol content and concentrate the flavors.
Allspice dram has a warm, spicy flavor with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. It is commonly used in cocktails such as the classic Jamaican cocktail "Pimento (allspice) Dram Punch," as well as in tiki drinks and other tropical cocktails. It can also be used in cooking and baking, adding a unique flavor to dishes such as fruit pies and glazes for meats.
