It’s Valentine’s Day! Just kidding, I don’t fucking care. Here’s a list of things you can do on Valentines day; eat chocolate, drink champagne, tell someone you love them, love yourself. Hot tip, its also a list of things you can do every day! Whether you’re a Valentine’s Day fan or you prefer to abstain, I propose that this Pisco Punch is the perfect cocktail for all eventualities.
Trying this Pisco Punch cocktail at the Comstock Saloon, complete with their secret ingredient, is at the top of my to-do list. Until then, I’ll be substituting the Nichol juice for lime bitters, since the only info I have on it is that it's a tincture made from Makrut lime leaves. For more history about this cocktail you can read all about it in Trevor Felch’s book San Francisco Cocktails.
