Recipe: Pisco Sours


The pisco sours cocktail. A total South American classic! It's sweet... it's sour... it's tangy... it's refreshing. This is a recipe Ben learnt from a top notch bartender on his trip to Peru. So if you're going to make it, better do it as authentically as possible, right?!


  • 6 ice cubes
  • 50 ml pisco
  • 25 ml sugar syrup (2 parts sugar : 1 part water)
  • 1.5 limes, juiced
  • 1 egg white (if shaken by hand, use 1/2 if using a blender)
  • 3 drops bitters, splashed on as garnish
Blend and Serve!!

Step 1

Blend And Serve!!

Add all but the bitters into a cocktail shaker and shake until ice cold and foaming. Pour into a glass and splash on a couple of drops of bitters. Serve immediately. Makes 1 *If making several at once, feel free to use a blender. If so, halve the amount of egg white.
