Pisco Sour

  Three Swingin' Chicks Recipes

Looking for a signature cooler to serve this summer? Try a Pisco Sour.  This national drink of Chile and Peru is made with pisco, a liquor distilled from grapes. Blended with fresh lemon juice and simple syrup and frothed with an egg white (hopefully from your own hens), it's a refreshing drink made for summer. Trust me, you'll love it!

1 1/2 cups pisco
3/4 cup simple syrup*
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 egg white**
1 1/2 cups ice

Combine the pisco, simple syrup, lemon juice and egg white in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Add the ice and blend until almost smooth.

Serve in tall thin glasses or wine glasses with a straw.
Serves 6

*To make simple syrup, bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil; simmer gently for 2 to 3 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Cool completely.
** This recipe uses raw eggs. You may substitute pasteurized eggs if you wish.
