Try the Tahitian Fix, by Maven's Head Bartender Kate Bolton
The Tahitian Fix is an interpretation of a Pisco Punch, a cocktail famously born in our fair city. Created at The Bank Exchange in the late 1800s (which was located where the Transamerica Pyramid stands today) the Pisco Punch is the perfect blend of botanicals, sweetness, and crisp citrus that harmoniously complement the impending spring weather. Barsol Pisco Italia is the choice pisco, partially due to the fact that Pisco Italia was the varietal used in the original Pisco Punch, but mostly due to Barsol's soft roundness, delicate botanicals and floral hints. It is a beautifully balanced Pisco that holds its own in any cocktail, especially this one.
