Ask any American who invented the cocktail and you’ll get a pretty definitive answer. It was us, buddy, all right?
When you travel to Peru, there’s no excuse to buy a standard soft drink when you’re out and about or to stick to the old vodka and soda when you’re at a bar. Peru has a unique variety of rehydrating beverages – here are the top five drinks you must try in Peru…
Pisco is to Peru what Vodka is to Russia – it is the national spirit. Pisco is distilled from grapes and is primarily produced in the towns of Pisco and Ica. You’ll find a Pisco Sour on any cocktail list in Peru and it’s a delightful mix of Pisco, lime juice, egg white and sugar syrup, shaken up with ice then topped with a few drops of bitters. You can even learn how to concoct the legendary cocktail on our Lima Pisco Making day tour. The combination of bitter/sour/sweet works very well… go easy though, the local bartenders are very liberal with their Pisco pouring!
