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.

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.
