I didn’t forget about y’all! It’s just been busy and good all around. Hoping the same for everyone out there reading this. So here’s a cocktail for you, to bring us back together.
We stumbled across the Pisco Sour while watching Zane Lamprey’s Three Sheets (a hilarious show from the early years of our courtship). It looked good, so we googled a few recipes and put something together. Years later, we still think of this as a refreshing summer staple.
Pisco isn’t something you run into every day, but it’s worth the hunt. It’s considered a brandy, but un-aged so the spirit is clear.
Tasting notes: The Pisco on its own smells a bit like a nice blanco tequila; sweet, a little floral, a little pear. But on taste, it’s more of a tequila with the characteristics of a nice dry European white wine. Earthy, smooth, a touch sweet and floral. The cocktail itself carries some of those same characteristics, but is very light and refreshing.
