Review:

Tangy, fruity and packed with flavour. Clove spice, fragrant floral pisco and elderflower with a hint of sweet pineapple and sour grapefruit.

History:

Created in 2006 by yours truly and amended (thanks to a comment by Donald Draper below) in December 2021 to use 1.25ml pimento dram in place of 2 muddled cloves.

This is a riff on the classic the Pisco Punch which was made famous before Prohibition at San Francisco's legendary Bank Exchange Bar. The wedge-shaped Transamerica Pyramid skyscraper now stands on the site of The Bank Exchange, at the corner of Washington & Montgomery Streets, hence this drink's name and wedge-shaped garnish.
