How to make:
MUDDLE cloves in base of shaker. ADD next 5 ingredients, SHAKE with ice and strain into ice-filled glass. TOP with champagne.
A tangy, balanced combination of rich flavours. The quality of pisco used is crucial to the success of a Pisco Punch.
This recipe is improved by using the gomme arabic marinade prescribed in Alfredo Micheli's Pisco Punch in place of sugar syrup. If using the marinade drop one of the marinated pineapple wedges and cloves into the drink as the garnish.
