At Louis' Basque Corner in Reno, Nevada, you'll find a traditional Picon Punch just as it's been enjoyed for decades—with a stiff pour of the orangey Torani Amer (a citrusy aperitif made in the style of France’s Amer Picon) and the slightest bit of grenadine and soda to lighten it up.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • ¼ oz. grenadine
  • 2 oz. Torani Amer
  • 1½ oz. soda water
  • ½ oz. brandy
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Instructions

Step 1

In a tulip glass filled with ice, drizzle the grenadine on top. Add the Torani Amer and soda water; stir briefly to combine. Carefully pour the brandy on top as a “floater,” garnish with a lemon twist, and serve immediately.
