Cocktail: How to Make a Pisco Sour

So, how about a cocktail that would somehow reenergize us and get us through a stressful week? After all, our featured drink has an ‘egg’ in it! Aaaand it is no other than the..

Pisco Sour. One of those popular drinks in South America!

The Ingredients

Consider the basic ingredients. Pisco Barsol Quebranta. Fresh lime juice. Simple syrup. Fresh egg white. Angostura bitters. Now, see how it’s done.

Know what would have made the drink a bit more tempting? The glass. He should have changed it with a ‘stemmed’ one or some smaller glass. See in the video, the one used was just a little too big as the drink was about half-full and without rocks in it. Yeah, presentation counts.

Then again, how does it taste anyway?

It’s a bit sharp but the aftertaste is more on the sweet side actually considering that Pisco is made of grapes with some syrup and egg white taming the drink — meanwhile, the term ‘sour’ is simply there because of the lime or the mixed drinks that contain the base liquor, Pisco. So in all, it’s a drinkable cocktail really!

In the end, it’s just a matter of preference — Peruvian or Chilean?!
