My first taste of this wonder (and potent) National Drink of Peru was at meeting of the Peruvian Congress of Cardiology. At the banquet that terminated the convention, I was introduced to the Peruvian National Drink – the “Pisco Sour.” This drink was so delicious, I had to have the recipe and was given the original recipe by my friend, Waldo Fernandez who had obtained it from the vineyard at Tabernero.
