Pisco Sour

Sharing is caring!

Pisco Sour is a classic cocktail originating from Peru, known for its refreshing and tangy flavor. It combines Peruvian pisco, a type of brandy, with fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and egg white. The mixture is shaken vigorously to create a frothy top and then finished with a few drops of bitters and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. This cocktail is both smooth and slightly tart, offering a delightful balance of sweetness and citrus.

Tasting Notes

The first sip of a Pisco Sour reveals a vibrant citrusy zing from the lime juice, balanced by the subtle sweetness of the simple syrup. The pisco brings a fruity and floral note, adding depth to the drink. The egg white contributes to a smooth, creamy texture, making the cocktail velvety and rich. Bitters and ground cinnamon add a hint of spice, rounding out the flavors with a slightly aromatic finish.

Sip the Zesty Perfection of South American Charm


  • 2 oz Peruvian pisco
  • 0.75 oz lime juice
  • 0.75 oz simple syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 drops bitters
  • ground cinnamon for garnish


  1. In a shaker add ice, pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white, and shake very well. The egg must foam and the shaker should get very cold.
  2. Strain into chilled coupe or brandy glass.
  3. Add the 3 drops of bitter, and dust a bit of cinnamon on the top.
  4. You can leave it as-is or use a toothpick to create a swirl pattern.


The bitters look amazing on top, but in reality they're better if added to the drink itself while you're mixing it.
