How to Cocktail: Pisco Sour

Both Chile and Peru claim this classic as their own. Top San Francisco bartender H. Joseph Ehrmann shows you how to make a Pisco Sour.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz Pisco (Pisco Portón)
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice
  • .5 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • 1 Fresh egg white
  • Garnish: Lime wheel and Angostura Bitters
  • Glass: Highball or flute

PREPARATION:
Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a highball glass or Champagne flute. Garnish with a lime wheel and 3 gentle drops of Angostura Bitters, which will settle in the foam of the cocktail. Using a straw, swirl the bitters into a simple design.
