Food and Drink: Pisco Sour Cocktails

Food and Drink Pisco Sour Cocktails
My latest favorite cocktail for Thanksgiving is the classic Latin Pisco Sour. Originated in Peru, the drink is made up usually of 3 parts pisco liquor to one part simple syrup and one part lemon or lime juice. What's really interesting and unique about this cocktail is the layer of egg white that's poured on top to create a delicious foam. Serve with or without the eggwhite.  Check out the recipe below!  

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 large (8 ounce) cocktail or 2 small cocktails.

  • 3 ounces pisco
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce key lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Angostura bitters (2-3 dashes)
  • Ice cubes
  1. Mix the pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice to fill, and shake vigorously.
  3. Strain into an old-fashioned glass, and sprinkle the Angostura bitters on top of the foam.
  4. Serve immediately.

For a twist, I enjoy squeezing fresh orange juice instead of the lime and putting a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon on top instead of the bitters. It makes a great holiday substitute! Make in a blender for larger groups and easy pouring. Happy drinking!
