Pisco Sour (Cocktail Codex, Classic)

  • Base Spirit Pisco
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Refreshing Citrusy
  • Served Up

The Pisco Sour is the national drink of both Peru and Chile. The drink became popular stateside during the cocktail renaissance on account of Pisco’s position as an affordable, yet tasty (and somewhat exotic) base, as well as the drink’s refreshing nature.

This Cocktail Codex version of the classic uses both lime and lemon juice to balance the pisco in this classic.
