“I am originally from Lima Peru and Pisco Sour is our traditional drink, which my mother taught me how to prepare.”

Grimanesa Amorós


- 4 oz of PISCO (any brand; but of course the taste will be smoothly when a good brand its used)

- 1 oz of lime Juice (or if you are like it to be more sour like myself I would used 2 ozone lime juice)

- 1 oz of white sugar or sugar syrup

- 1 oz of egg white

- 4 to 6 ice cubes

- 3 drops of Angostura bitters


- Pull all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture for 8 to 10 seconds.

- Serve in a pre-chilled glass

- Garnish with an extra dash of Angostura bitters at the top of the foam.
