Picon Cocktail

Picon Cocktail

Picon Cocktail.

1/2 Italian Vermouth. (generous 1 oz Martini and Rossi Sweet Vermouth)
1/2 Amer Picon. (generous 1 oz Zwack)

Shake well and strain cocktail glass. (Garnish with orange wheel.)

As is my wont, I did build this vermouth heavy cocktail over ice, instead of the whole shaking and straining thing.

Again taking Mr. Jonny Raglin’s advice and substituting Zwack for Amer Picon, and darn it if I didn’t enjoy this cocktail even more than the previous Picon Grenadine Cocktail.

For more information about Zwack, check out Mr. Darcy O’Neil’s recent article over at Art of Drink: Hussar Sour

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.

One thought on “Picon Cocktail

  1. Actually, this made with the listed ingredients is quite nice. I used Amer Picon and Cinzano sweet, but I stirred. Not sure it’s all that much nicer than Amer Picon alone, but it does help that bottle go twice as far. ;)
