Several of the recipes in the book require a spirit called Amer Picon. They don’t make it anymore so I had to locate a recipe online:

  • 3.00 bottles Amaro Ramazzotti
  • 7.50 cups orange tincture
  • 0.75 bottle Stirrings Blood Orange bitters
  • 0.75 liter Evian
  • Place all ingredients into a container and stir. Allow ingredients to get to know each other for at least one week. Keep excess refrigerated.

I cut this recipe drastically. My first attempt at making orange tincture only resulted in a cup, but this should make more than enough Amer Picon for me to use in these recipes. If I like it I’ll make more.
