Ponana Souk by Colin Cowie!

This is a potent, refreshing, and memorable cocktail. The Amaretto gives it just a hint of that inimitable bittersweet almond flavor. It is my version of a drink I first encountered at the Ponana Souk, which was one of Los Angeles’s greatest nightclubs some years ago. As I recall, they used to down it as shots there. But I’ve made it much more palatable here by pouring it over ­ice.
Yield: 1 pitcher
2 1/2 to 3 ounces Amaretto ­liqueur
10 to 12 ounces vodka
10 to 12 ounces peach ­schnapps
10 to 12 ounces cranberry ­juice
10 to 12 ounces pineapple ­juice
6 sprigs fresh mint, for ­garnish
Pour all the ingredients into a pitcher and stir. Divide among 6 rocks glasses over ice with a sprig of fresh mint in each ­glass.
