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.
