Cocktails From Around The World: Peruvian Pisco Sour

Peruvian Pisco Sour
Though both Peru and Chile lay claim to the Pisco Sour cocktail as their official cocktail, the drink actually originated in Lima, Peru during the early 1900s. It is so popular in Peru that the first Saturday of February is designated as "Pisco Sour Day"!

The Peruvian Pisco Sour is made with Peruvian Pisco (aromatic brandy made from grapes) and includes ingredients such as Angostura bitters, egg white, syrup and lime juice.

Today the Pisco Sour has gained many fans around the world, and rightly so. Whether you choose to travel to Peru, or mix one up at home, the Peruvian Pisco Sour is a great drink to welcome the weekend! Cheers!
