Pisco Sour Cocktail Recipe

Cocktail lovers can easily discover the wonders of South American liquor with the pisco sour, a simple cocktail with a sour taste. Pisco margaritas, an iconic cocktail in Peru and Chile, where pisco is usually produced, is among the most popular drinks. Taking your first sip, you’ll realize just what all the buzz is about. It’s very refreshing, an absolute treat to drink, and will leave you wanting more. Brandy made from grapes is different depending on its style of pisco, which is characterized by its unaged flavor.

It is most commonly pisco acholado and pisco puro that are poured into pisco sour drinks. Pisco sour is a drink that goes beyond the spirit of choice, but is still a classic sour. This drink includes lemon or lime juice, as well as simple syrup for sweet and sour notes that can be adjusted to your taste. The soft egg white gives it a pleasant foamy top without tasting eggy at all. It finishes beautifully with brown drops adorning the foam so you can have fun styling (by swirling it with a toothpick, you can create a latte art effect).
