Pisco Sour Recipe — A Classic Peruvian Cocktail

Yields1 ServingPrep Time2 minsTotal Time2 mins

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.

Empty the contents of the cocktail shaker into a cocktail glass, ensuring that you top off the glass with a nice layer of egg white foam.
