Pisco Sour

  • Serves

    makes 1 Cocktail

Pisco—an eau de vie distilled from grapes—was born on the coast of Peru, but Chileans make it too, and each country claims the cocktail for which it is best known. The recipe will look familiar to anyone who has ever made a sour of any kind; the pisco imparts a winey quality.


  • 1 oz. pisco
  • 34 oz. simple syrup
  • 12 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 12 lightly beaten egg white
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass filled with ice to serve.
