French citrus aperitif

Picon is a caramel-coloured, flavoured bitters drunk as an apéritif, which traditionally accompanies beer in the east and north of France, as well as in Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. “Picon” is a trademark distributed by Moët Hennessy Diageo. It is made from a base of fresh oranges which are dried and mixed with a solution of alcohol which is distilled.
