Pisco Sour Recipe — A Classic Peruvian Cocktail

ShareTweetSave
DifficultyBeginner

Peru and Chile fiercely contest the origin of this drink, but I was first introduced to it during my visit to Peru in 2014. Pisco, a brandy produced from distilled fermented grapes in the winemaking regions of Chile and Peru, is at the base of this drink. This recipe uses an easy-to-remember 2−1−1 ratio that ensures a balance between all the ingredients.

Safety Note: This recipe uses raw egg whites, and those with a compromised immune system should be cautious before proceeding. You can pasteurize the egg whites by putting them in a 131°F sous vide bath for 2 hours.
