Thirsty Thursdays: Pisco Sour

March 14, 2013

A pisco sour is a traditional Peruvian cocktail.  Pisco, similar to rum, pairs deliciously with citrus juices, pineapple, or mango.  This cocktail uses raw eggs whites to create the froth so make sure they are pasteurized.

Pisco Sour


2 oz KAPPA Pisco
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1 egg white


Combine KAPPA Pisco and rest of the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice.  Shake vigorously and strain into a small champagne flute.  Top with tree drops, or half dashes, of Angostura bitters (to create the shape of the Southern Cross).
