Barbary Coast Pisco Punch Recipe | Tasting Table Recipes

McDonnell uses San Francisco-made pineapple gum syrup from Small Hand Foods [link] to add silky, slightly thicker texture to the drink. Gum syrup, a historic cocktail ingredient that had almost died out in modern mixing, is slowly making a comeback thanks to the efforts of bartenders like Jennifer Colliau, who is behind the Small Hand Foods product line.
