About this Cocktail

"Named for the current store occupying Antoine Amadee Peychaud’s former apothecary, we humbly submit this cocktail as an example of what is possible when you throw out the rule book. Applying a “Pimm’s Cup” treatment to Peychaud’s Bitters results in a brilliantly red and bittersweet cocktail that is unexpectedly and entirely drinkable." From 'Rogue Cocktails' by Kirk Estopinal and Maks Pazuniak

  • 2 oz Peychaud's Bitters
  • 1 oz Lemon
  • 1 oz Simple
  • 2 Strawberries
  • 3 Cucumber slices
  • 3 swaths of Grapefruit peel
  • 3 swaths of Orange peel
  • Sanbitter

Add all the ingredients except Sanbitter into a mixing tin. Muddle and set aside for two minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Add ice, shake and strain over fresh ice in a collins glass; top with Sanbitter. Garnish with a cucumber slice.

    This drink fascinates me.

    One of my favorite Summer drinks. Sadly Pellegrino has discontinued making Sanbitter so if you can find it stock up.

    What would a substitute be?
  • Brant Boelts
    Stappji. I just came across it last December at an Italian store called Tenutas in Racine Wisconsin. You might have a distributor in your area. Cheers!

    Oops, sorry no i at the end.
