A Peek at Peru

South America is a diverse continent with much to offer. Lately all eyes have been on PERU because it has a multitude of treasures; the Amazon River, Chan Chan, Huanchaco, Machu Picchu, Mancora, Puno, Uras Islands.....

The Peruvians have some of the best cuisine in the world and eating meals in Peru is an experience in itself. The national drink "Pisco Sour" is something you just have to try. Check out my recipe below.

Follow me on my next post as I share the treasures of Peru and provide recipes for delicious dishes like the famous "Ceviche."

Coming soon: PERU (The country of adventures and treasures)






Pisco Sour

3 ounces pisco
1 ounce syrup (recipe below)
1 ounce lime juice
1 egg white
Angostura BItters (2 dashes)

Mix the pisco, syrup, lime juice and egg white in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake.
Strain in a drinking glass and sprinkle two dashes of bitters on top.

Pisco Sours are great to drink anytime of year!

How to make the syrup:

Boil 1 cup of water in a small pot. Dissolve 2 cups of sugar in the boiling water. Once the sugar completely dissolves and the syrup thickens remove from heat and cool the mixture. This mixture can be stored in glass bottles.
