Napoleon Cocktail

His name's on so many classic drinks, but this one is because of the Amer Picon. It's hard to find, so a quick substitute for small amounts is to muddle orange zest into triple sec and add bitters. Some flavors will be forever lost to time, however. We can only hope someone has a bottle of Amer Picon for auction on Ebay.

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz white curacao
  • 1 tsp. Dubonnet Rouge
  • 1 tsp. Amer Picon
  • cherry and lemon twist garnishes
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass garnished with a cherry and lemon twist.
