For my 22 before 23 birthday list, I made a goal to cook 22 recipes from 22 places. I started by making a list of countries where I either liked the food or knew nothing about the food. The point of this goal is to learn new things about ingredients and cultures while trying to improve my cooking skills. See past recipes here: 1, 2
I was looking up recipes for something to make from Peru and when I googled "recipes from Peru," Pisco Sours popped up everywhere. So, for this post, I decided to make a cocktail instead of cooking something. It's fun to learn cocktail recipes and this is definitely one I'll make again. Peru and Chile both have versions of this drink, but I chose to follow the recipe from Peru.
serves: 1 cocktail
2 ounces Pisco
1 ounce lime juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1 egg white
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with some ice (small handful). Give it a good shake and pour it into an Old Fashioned glass. To garish, add a couple drops of bitters.
I wasn't too sure about this drink at first, because of the egg white. But it turned out pretty good! It was refreshing and the bitters added a cool flavor. Have you had a Pisco Sour before? What dinner was served with it? xo, Laura
