Picon Punch

Picon Punch


Serves 1

Adapted from a recipe in Ted Haigh's book, Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails, this is a very classy, tasty punch that originated in Bakersfield, California. According to Haigh, the original Amer Picon can no longer be found, but adding a dash of orange bitters brings one very close to the original.

  • 2-1/2 ounces Torani Amer (if this special spirit
         cannot be found at your local liquor store,
         go to www.bevmo.com or www.wineglobe.com)
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • soda water, as needed
  • 1 ounce brandy
  • orange bitters
  • maraschino cherry, for garnish (optional)

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the Torani Amer and grenadine. Fill with soda water. Top with float of brandy, add a dash of bitters, and garnish with a cherry, if desired.
