After a day of fishing at Chile West, along with appetizers we like to introduce our guests to a very popular drink called the “Pisco Sour”.
So what the heck is Pisco? Well… Pisco is liquor made from grapes. It’s not wine, more like a brandy.
If you ask any Chilean, they will tell you that pisco was invented in Chile. If you ask any Peruvian, they will tell you it was invented in Peru. This is an ongoing debate and is still unsettled. Regardless, pisco makes a number of great cocktails.
While there are many recipes for a Pisco Sour and probably every bartender will tell you that their recipe is the best, it is relatively simple to make, apart from the squeezing of fresh lemon juice.
Here is the most traditional recipe, which is what we like.
Preparation: Shake hard or blend with ice and strain into glass. The bitters are an aromatic garnish topping the finished drink, put on top of pisco sour foam. If you opt not to use egg white, you won’t have foam.
