Korean traditional cinnamon punch. Dark reddish brown in color, it is made from gotgam (dried persimmon) and ginger and is often garnished with pine nuts. The punch is made by brewing first the cinnamon and ginger at a slow boil. The solids are then removed for clarification and the remaining liquid is boiled again after adding either honey or brown sugar. The dried persimmons are cut into portions and are added to soak and soften after the brew has completely cooled.



  • 4-5 dried persimmons
  • 5 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup of ginger, sliced
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • pine nuts
  • 7½ to 8 cups of water
