DIY vs. Buy: Allspice Dram, the Tiki Secret

Tiki drinks are so much fun … and so are tiki ingredients. Allspice dram is a little hard to find and a lot easy to make. So make it already!

Allspice dram is a simple liqueur flavored with allspice berries. It’s also known as pimento dram, because allspice is a berry from the pimento tree. (But pimento makes most people think of olives, so I don’t like to call it that.) There’s nothing like it. It’s a big part of Tiki drinks, adding a dark, strong, and spicy counterpoint to rum and sweet ingredients.
