Brindis Peru with Pisco Sours – Going To Machupicchu !!free walking tour2We cannot mention cocktails in Peru without immediately thinking of the classic Pisco Sour, which is considered the country’s national drink. You’ll likely be offered various pre-dinner glasses during your time in Peru, and it’s a taste you’re sure to miss upon leaving. Pisco is a clear grape brandy that takes its name from the Port of Pisco in Peru, and it’s the most famous product to hail from the country. The Pisco Sour cocktail was actually created in Lima in the 1916s, by American bartender and ex-part Victor Morris of Morris Bar. It’s prepared with Pisco, lime juice, egg white, and syrup.free walking tour3What makes the cocktail unique is the egg white, which is traditionally shaken up but occasionally simply blended. It gives the drink an attractive foamy head and more body, making the cocktail almost sorbet-like. The Angostura bitters atop the drink are a creative finish as well, which adds complexity to the flavour. If you have access to some good Peruvian Pisco, you can make your own pisco sour at home.
Pisco Sour Cocktail:
1-1/2 ounces pisco
1/2 ounce key lime juice
1/2 ounce simple sugar syrup
Half an egg white
Angostura bitters for garnishfree walking tour4All of the ingredients except the bitters are vigorously shaken with ice in a metal tin and then strained into a chilled old-fashioned glass. Garnish with three drops of bitters. Although you’ll see lots of creative modern variations on this classic cocktail, such as the coca sour, the pisco sour is undoubtedly the king of cocktails in Peru. It’s the traditional way of starting dinner in Cuzco. As Peruvians like to say, “the first pisco is great, the second is better, and the third you can’t remember!
