  • 01
  • Add ingredients (except lemon peel) to a chilled mixing glass, stir for at least 40 seconds to combine and thoroughly chill. Taste for balance, strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with a lemon twist and serve.

Note Amer Picon is a bittersweet orange-flavoured French apéritif available from select bottle shops. For maraschino syrup, mix equal parts sugar syrup and maraschino liqueur.
