Pisco Sour

Last week, I had the chance to discover Peru's national drink, the Pisco Sour. It's sort of the equivalent of Mexico's margarita, Cuba's mojito, and Brazil's caipirinha. Unfortunately, I ended up getting altitude sickness while in Arequipa and Lake Titicaca (story coming) and it's kept me from enjoying a second round. Well...I'm back at sea level for the rest of the trip so today's the day.

In case you don't know, a Pisco Sour is a drink made from pisco, which is a brandy-like alcohol distilled from grapes. The other ingredients are: lemon or lime juice, egg whites, simple syrup, and bitters. It doesn't taste very strong so I guess it's pretty easy to get smashed.

Since most are back to work today, I'll have one for you with my cebiche lunch!
