Picon is a caramel-coloured, flavoured bitters which traditionally accompanies beer in France. Picon is made from a base of fresh oranges which are dried and mixed with a solution of alcohol which is distilled. Sugar, syrup and caramel are added last. Pernod is sometimes mixed with beer but it can also be used in some nice cocktail recipes. Send us your cocktail recipes with pernod and we'll bring them online.
