This is a typical Chilean drink served at every party in Chile (also served before lunch or dinner). This is my mother's version and although there are may be as many versions of it as there are Chileans in Chile, I think this is the best!

I was born in the US but both parents are Chileans-- this recipe is perfect! The right combo of sweet-sour with a foamy top. Most pisco sours are just "pisco margaritas" not sour and not frothy. Many people skip the egg white -- and miss out on the full effect... Read More

I love Pisco Sours! The first time I had one was here at a local Peruvian restaurant. Then I went to Argentina and Chile where as you said these are enjoyed before meals. Great to find your recipe. Now if I had only brough more Pisco home from Chile with me (it is so much less expensive in the duty-free shop!) Read More

This is the best Pisco Sour recipe I have had reminiscent of the best Chilean drinks. I have tried Pisco throughout Chile and South America and no recipe matches the crisp taste of this mix. Read More

Experimented with lemon vs lime juice. Lime juice as the recipe specifies is better. Read More

This is the most authentic recipe I have found to date. It has been the hit of all the parties when I make it. I usually add some lime rind to garnish. Read More
