Spiced Persimmon Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

One of our favorite things about Fall is when the persimmons come into season, because, when they’ve arrived, they’ve arrived in full force. Here in California we have both major types of persimmons — the squat Fuyu and the teadrop-shaped Hachiya — and while the Fuyu is a perfect pairing in salads, we turn to the Hachiya anytime we want persimmon purée like in desserts or this Spiced Persimmon Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe.

Speaking of, our latest cocktail creation is a Spiced Persimmon Old Fashioned cocktail — it’s  a slightly sweet and very autumnal twist on a classic old fashioned. But, let’s be real, we made it as a sort of a holiday life preserver — so that no matter the family drama, or flight delay, or any other headache, you’ve got a good stiff drink to help you dial it down and put it all in perspective.
