Many of our products this time of year are coming from Peru including the mangoes, in light of this we thought we would add a little mango & basil to our pisco sours and top it off with some ginger bitters!
This Peruvian specialty also has roots in Chili. Pisco is liquor distilled from grapes, namely three varietals of white grapes, including the Muscat. The Peruvians take great pride in their Pisco sour, which they keep like their ceviche, simple. While the Chileans have few different varietals of the Pisco Sour including the mango Pisco Sour and the green Chile version. Either way all Pisco sours have a few things in common: Pisco, simple syrup, lime juice (Persian variety, and egg whites and bitters).
