Picon with white wine - Picon royal
Picon is an aperitif drink made from oranges and aromatics. It was first distilled in 1832 and was intended as a remedy for malaria. It is particularly popular in northern France, where it is often drunk with beer. You will find the picon au vin blanc on almost every drinks menu in West Flanders (Belgium) and far beyond that region. The Amer Picon is a basic drink and is seldom drunk straight. Besides white wine, you can experiment with cassis, lemon, lemon gin, tripple sec or other liqueurs. Few do it, but it is advisable to prepare your picon mix in advance without adding the ice cubes of course, and let it rest for at least a week.

Put two ice cubes in a long drink glass. Fill up to half with Picon Amer. Add half a shot glass (2 cl) of gin and a dash of lemon syrup. You may also omit the syrup. Now fill the glass to the brim with dry white wine or with cava in the "Royal" version. If desired, decorate the rim of the glass with a thinly sliced string of orange peel (unsprayed!) with the white skin removed, or an orange slice in the glass.
