Peru's Most Popular Cocktail (alcoholic)

One of the most popular cocktails in Peru is the Pisco Sour. It is based on the Pisco (kind of brandy) and the first creation originated in Lima in the early 1920s. There are many stories who created it first and even international discussions (between Peru and Chile), but nevertheless it is a must for every Peru visitor.

Apart from the Pisco other main ingredients are lime juice, egg white and sugar syrup. Usually the cocktail is served in three sizes: Single, Double or "Catedral" (Cathedral). When prepared right the drink is a fine balance between the quite strong Pisco (alcohol percentage of between 42% and 52%), the intense lime juice and the sweetness of the sugar syrup. Be careful when ordering your first Pisco Sour Catedral as the mix is very deceptive...

There is a great variety of Pisco's that are very different in taste and flavors. Pisco Puro, Pisco Acholado, Pisco Aromático and Pisco Mosto Verde are the four main types (read more on our "Pisco Page").
