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.


  1. Beat the egg white and sugar in a blender.
  2. Add the Pisco, lime juice, ice and angostura bitters.
  3. Mix well and pour into whiskey sour glasses.
