Recipe: Pisco Punch
Once only made from scratch, pineapple gum syrup is now available for retail purchase. Gum arabic gives this fruity, aromatic ingredient a rich texture utilized in many classic cocktails.
The most famous is the Pisco Punch: In an ice-filled shaker, combine 2 ounces Machu Pisco, ¾ ounce lemon juice and ¾ ounce Liber & Co. pineapple gum syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
