Ginger Liqueur

Tastes like Domaine de Canton. Delicious. Used in the Yule Log Grog.


  •  ounces ginger root (I used dried, fresh will work too)
  •  vanilla bean
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 1/2 cups  (I used Mount Gay Eclipse)

Boil the ginger, vanilla, sugar, and water for 10 minutes, then let cool and put into a jar to sit for 2-3 days. Double strain and bottle!

Allspice Dram


  • 1/2 cup allspice berries
  • 2 1/2 cups navy-strength rum
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Toast and crush allspice berries, then soak in rum for two weeks. Mix with simple syrup (1:1) made with brown sugar, vanilla bean, and cinnamon.
