The Pisco Sour cocktail embodies the rich heritage of Peruvian and Chilean cuisine. Its base spirit is Pisco, a South American wine derivative similar to brandy, which is mixed with lime and the froth of an egg white, creating a drink that is fun to make, cool to look at, and delicious to drink. Join us as we guide you through the art of crafting this classic cocktail, including simple secrets and variations that will elevate your libation to a higher plane.
- 2 oz Pisco
- 3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz Agave Syrup
- 1 Egg White
- Angostura Bitters (for garnish)
Pisco Sour Cocktail Recipe
- Combine pisco, lime juice, syrup and egg white in a shaker.
- Shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds, until frothy.
- Add a generous amount of ice to the shaker, and shake until well-chilled.
- Strain contents into a chilled glass.
- Finish with a few drops of bitters on top to garnish.
Pro-Tip If you want to achieve the perfect froth, shake the pisco, syrup and lime juice ingredients with ice, then shake the egg white separately, without ice. This two-step process ensures a luxuriously velvety texture atop your Pisco Sour.
Hot Remix Add a tropical twist to your Pisco Sour by incorporating 1/2 oz of passionfruit puree. This exotic variation enhances the cocktail with a burst of fruity sweetness, taking your taste buds on a South American adventure.
