Jamie Boudreau spent a lot of time developing a replacement for Amer Picon, a French liqueur no longer available in North America. We reduced the portions of each ingredient by a factor of 9 for those of you who would like to try it at home without the expense of producing 3 finished bottles. Check out this link to view Jamie’s recipe in its entirety.
- 250 ML of Amaro Ramazzotti
- 29.58 ML of Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters
- 83.3 ML of Evian
- 197.157 ML of Homemade Orange Tincture
Dried orange peels in high proof neutral grain alcohol such as Everclear or Gem Clear for 1 month.
Once fully infused, filter out the orange peel and save your orange tincture in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.
All of the Amer Boudreau ingredients listed above in a resealable bottle and shake the mixture to blend the ingredients together.
Store your Amer Boudreau in the refrigerator and allow the mixture to mellow for at least one week.
Don’t over muddle the mint. Releasing too much chlorophyll will affect the flavor of your cocktail.
