Persimmon | The Pumpkin Punch Cocktail Secret Ingredient

This punch recipe stands out in the crowd because it contains persimmon. And haven’t you heard? Persimmon is the new pumpkin! Okay maybe not quite.

You won’t be seeing persimmon show up on a cafe menu anytime soon. But this orange fruit can give pumpkins a run for their money.

They can be made sweet or savory, perfectly meld with fall spices and give cocktails a lovely mouthfeel! (Cocktail nerd speak for texture!)

Using Allspice Dram For Fall Cocktails

Another spice that gives this drink some zing is Allspice! What sounds like a mish-mash of lots of spices (like an everything bagel) is actually just one.

It has the flavor profile of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon, making it perfect for baking or cocktails!

I added in Allspice Dram to bring in these flavors while also giving it a kick. Allspice Dram is an allspice-infused rum liqueur.

It’s traditionally an ingredient in Tiki drinks that has seen a resurgence in the past couple of years and pairs perfectly with fall/winter cocktails.

You can also find Allspice Dram in our Spiked Dirty Chai Latte Cocktail. I bet it would be great in hot chocolate too!

When you grab a bottle of this liqueur, it will be on your bar cart for a while. It’s packed with intense spice flavor so a little goes a looong way!

Because of this, I would ere on the side of caution and put less than you think you might need when making a big batch and add more after to your liking.

  1. The recipe calls for “1/4 PUMPKIN PURÉE.” 1/4 what? Can, cup, other? I really want to make these, but need to know how much pumpkin to prepare for my group of 7 drinking adults… Help!
