Review:

Traditionally this drink is blended with crushed ice, but I (yours truly) prefer my Pisco Sours served straight-up or on the rocks. Either way, it's best served in an old-fashioned glass stored in the fridge or freezer.

History:

The origin of this cocktail is much disputed and full Pisco Sour story makes for an interesting read and a good bar story to retell.
