Peruvian Pisco Sour

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

Pisco is a clear brandy that is popular in both Peru and Chile. The white muscat grapes, from which pisco is distilled, were first grown in Peru by the Spaniards in the 16th century (at that time Peru & Chile were both part of Spain’s American empire.) When they became independent countries, both claimed the liquor as their own. Therefore the national drink of both Peru and Chile, is the rich “Pisco Sour.” However there is a difference in sweetness and the fruit used between the two countries’ piscos. I have posted both recipes so be sure to try the Chilean Pisco Sour as well.

While traveling in Chile, our Pisco Sours were always prepared with white powdered sugar. And egg white of course.
