The Peruvian Exploration Dreamer
A bright and refreshing cocktail first created to compliment the cuisine of Peru and Chile. Not many people know that grapes are used to make a variety of spirits, not just wine. By stoping these grapes by foot and distilling them a single time, PiscoLogía Pisco (our favorite pisco right now) achieves an incredibly smooth and delightful flavor, making base for a pisco sour. Shake this one up on a warm summer afternoon, or in the cold winter evenings when you are dreaming of a sunny getaway.
