Pisco Sour


First time trying pisco? You’re in for a treat. This grape brandy ranges from clear to amber in color and has a distinctive wine-like aroma and flavor, ranging from smooth and herbal to funky and earthy depending on the age and quality. The best pisco for a pisco sour is your favorite type of pisco, so taste around and find the one that you love most! 


1 large egg white

2 oz. pisco

3/4 oz. fresh lime juice

3/4 oz. simple syrup


Aromatic bitters, for garnish


  1. Step 1In a cocktail shaker, combine egg white, pisco, lime juice, and simple syrup. Cover and vigorously shake until well combined, about 10 seconds.
  2. Step 2Fill shaker with ice and continue to shake until outside of shaker is frosty, about 10 seconds more. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a couple drops of bitters. 


Cocktails are best enjoyed right after making and do not work as a make-ahead drink because the soda will go flat.
