For all of those looking to enjoy this Thirsty Thursday, we have the traditional Peruvian cocktail recipe waiting for you!
The preparation of Pisco with lemon dates back to the 18th century, and the first Pisco Sour is theorized to have been created in the early 1920’s, by bartender Victor Vaughn Morris. He was an American who had lived in Peru for several decades. Although much debate lingers over the origin of this popular cocktail, Peru continues to stand as the home of such a tasty drink!
