Inspiration

Pisco Sour

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. 

Let’s Get Shakin’

Ingredients

1 Egg white 

1 oz simple syrup (we recommend Simple Goodness Sisters Lemon Herb)

2 oz PiscoLogía Pisco

Juice of half a lime

Ice

Bitters (we recommend Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters)

 

Dry shake your egg in a shaker until it becomes frothy. It should take roughly 45 seconds.

Add in simple syrup, Pisco, lime juice, and ice and shake.

Strain into glass and top with a few dashes of bitters. 

…but am I going to like it?

Getting to know your palate, what you like, and what you don’t like is a critical part of being a great craft tippler AND key to becoming a great home bartender as well!

So before you break out that barware and buy the key ingredients, here’s a little guidance on what to expect from this cocktail so you can start to hone in on exactly what elements of cocktails you enjoy and which you’d prefer to minimize.  This helps you order new cocktails you love when you’re out on the town better as well!
