FAQ: Picon Maison recipe?

Picon is just about the most popular aperitif on “de schreve”.

The bitter liquor is distilled in Marseille. It was invented by Gaétan Picon, who during his service with the French army in Algeria sought a medicine against malaria. Why Amer Picon is especially loved in the north is a mystery.

Picon is made from orange peel, yellow gentian and the bark of the cinchona tree. It has a bittersweet taste and a slightly spicy bouquet. It is drunk pure as well as mixed with beer (the lighter Picon Bière) or white wine (the Picon Club).

You can buy a ready-made product (Picon Orange or Citron), but the really tasty Picon is one you mix yourself. The trick is to find the right balance between bitter and sweet. Everyone has their own recipe; ingredients are Picon Amer, syrup (cassis or grenadine or lemon), white wine (dry muscadet), liquor (Grand Marnier, Tripple sec, Cointreau, Curaçoa, …), a secret extra and time (let it rest for a week).

Our not so secret recipe for Picon Vin Blanc (5 bottles of 75 cl)

1 bottle of Picon Club 1 liter

3 bottles of 75 cl dry white wine

20 ml essence curaçao brun de hollande

400 ml alcohol 90°

200 gr sugar

450 ml of water

100 ml of grenadine syrup

Take a measuring cup (> 1 liter) to dissolve the 20 ml essence and 100 ml grenadine syrup in the 400 ml alcohol. Gently heat 450 ml of water and dissolve 200 g of sugar in it. Mix this sugar water with the alcohol mixture in a measuring cup and let it cool. Take 5 empty 75 cl bottles with screw cap and pour 200 ml Picon in each bottle, pour 200 ml alcohol mixture in each bottle, fill the bottles with the white wine.

Let it rest for at least 1 week, keep cool, shake before use, serve cool with ice cube.
