Pisco Punch : New Worlder

“San Francisco’s Bank Exchange Saloon gave birth to the Pisco Punch during the late 1800’s. Barman Duncan Nicol’s secret ingredient, cocaine in Vin Mariani, made the cocktail so potent and popular that he imposed a two-drink limit. A modern recipe, sans cocaine, replaces Vin Mariani with a red aperitif wine.” — Nico Vera
