Preparation Notes

  • Pisco Sours can be made with lime juice instead of lemon juice.
  • The choice of glassware varies widely and is relatively unimportant for this recipe. Short goblet glasses work very well, such as a small white wine glass or large sour glass. Highball or rocks glasses can be used in a pinch too!

    Tried it ages ago with Pisco from Peru. Awesome drink! Can't buy it here in Saskatchewan, Canada. Hope to find it at a duty-free shop somewhere......

    You should use lime juice, not lemon juice.

    This is the Pervian recipe. The Chilean version is much simpler to make, and very tasty. Ingredients: * 3 parts Pisco * 1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice * powdered sugar and crushed ice to taste Preparation: Mix together in a cocktail shaker.

    These drinks are very, very good -- but very, very sneaky. One and you're happy. Two and they just seem light and fluffy. Three and you just think it's a sweet nothing ... then you wake up 5 miles from where you last remember being.

    I just came back from a trip to Peru where you find Pisco sour on every cocktail menu and damn they're good. Needless to say I picked up some Pisco at the duty free in the airport and can't wait to make my own sours. Thanks for the recipe.
