One of my favorite cocktails is a Pisco Sour. Have you ever had one? It is a delicately flavored citrus cocktail with a float of whipped egg whites. It sounds bizarre, but the flavor is amazing and slightly tart yet creamy!
Anyways, one of my favorite blogs, Happy Yolks, featured a Pisco Sour and I learned that it is the national drink of both Chile and Peru (it originated in Lima, Peru).
A traditional Pisco Sour goes a little something like this:
3 oz. pisco (a colorless grape brandy)
3/4 oz. simple syrup (1:1) or 2 tsp. sugar
1 oz. lemon juice, fresh-squeezed
1 fresh egg white (pasteurized if you like)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Tools: shaker, strainerGlass: cocktail or goblet
