How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.


Float three drops of Amargo Chuncho or Angostura aromatic bitters to signify health wealth and happiness.


Traditionally this drink is blended with crushed ice, but I (Simon Difford) prefer it served straight-up. Be sure to drink it quickly while it's still cold.


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.
