ABOUT SujeongGwa (Korean Cinnamon and Ginger Punch) RECIPE

SujeongGwa is a Korean traditional beverage made with mainly cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Koreans usually drink this beverage as a dessert. It tastes good both hot or cold, but I prefer it cold with ice cubes. Traditionally dried persimmon is served with this punch, which makes for a very elegant dessert to serve the guests. I did not find the dried persimmon where I currently live. If you do have dried persimmon, make sure you soak it in the punch for at least 1 hour to soften the texture.
