I leave you here 3 Tips so that your Pisco Sour is unique and delicious ;).

Tips and tricks

  • Always fresh lemons. Do not squeeze the lemon too hard and never to the end, since doing so releases its oils that make the taste of the drink bitter.
  • Do not go overboard with sugar, sweet should not be the predominant flavor. The main thing is to feel the taste of pisco and lemon.
  • The glasses are always very cold, if you serve it in a glass at room temperature you will be losing that freshness that pisco requires.

Additional information

There are several theories about the true story of Pisco Sour , however the most repeated or most accepted is the one attributed to Victor Morris the creation of our national cocktail. The story goes that Victor Morris offered this cocktail at his bar called Morris Bar Inspired by the Whiskey Sour.

To date there is no document that proves the original recipe, so it is doubtful that the recipe of yesteryear will resemble the current recipe. A second theory attributes the creation to the workers of the Morris Bar , the Peruvian bartenders Alfonso Bregoye, Graciano Cabrera and Alberto Mezarina.

The third theory says that original recipe belongs to Victor Morris , but that this was evolving for approximately 20 years until the one we know today and created by the bartender Mario Bruijet, who years later became a worker at the Maury hotel.

Years later, the main Lima hotels, such as the Hotel Maury, El Bolívar and others tried to imitate the original recipe. Many got it thanks to the fact that the workers of the Morris Bar were the ones who went to work in these hotels after the closure of the Morris Bar.

Currently celebrating the "Pisco Sour Day" every first Saturday of February and has the character of Cultural Patrimony of the Nation.
