Summer pisco sour

pink pisco sour

This drink is made for sultry summer afternoons and midweek day dreams.

It has the tart perfection of a classic pisco sour but the addition of a cup of blueberries gives this drink a lovely pop of summer flavor and a delightful pink color!

Throw the following ingredients into your blender:

1 cup pisco (we like Porton)

1 cup meyers lemon juice (or the juice of one lime and the rest lemon juice for a full cup)

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg white

1 cup frozen blueberries (you can use fresh but we wanted to make some room in our freezer…for more blueberries…)

Blend everything together until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over ice, add a drop or two of bitters on top and enjoy a tart taste of summer!

Okay.

Maybe I got a little carried away.

But this simple syrup is inspirational.

If you can’t get your hands on our Ghost Scorpion Himalayan Salt then you can sub any kind of super spicy salt!!

Strawberry Piscorita

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love a good margarita as much as the next person, but I also love a good pisco sour. So sometimes I try and make both those drinks happen in some way at the same time and because its strawberry season this drink was created:strawberry piscorita

Here’s what you need:

8 oz strawberries with lavender sugar (here’s what I mean)

6 oz fresh lime juice

6 oz Pisco (we like to use Portón)

4 oz Cointreau

A couple cubes of ice (and also some crushed ice to pour the drink over)

Rim glasses with simple syrup and lavender sugar and set aside. In blender combine all ingredients and a blend with a couple cubes of ice. Pour over crushed ice and enjoy!!

Besos,

The Honeysuckle

We’d like to make a toast to sunny days and childhood memories. That’s what this drink tastes like to us.

It tastes like running around with no shoes in the slanting afternoon light searching for the honeysuckles with the sweetest nectar and pretending not to hear when your parents call you in for the night.

And all of this wild child taste is hidden by an elegant and sophisticated exterior that makes it perfect for any occasion.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1.25 ounces Asian pear juice

1.25 ounces elderflower liqueur

Brut or champagne to fill flute

honey and ginger sugar to rim glass

Start by rimming your flute with honey and ginger sugar. Don’t be alarmed when the honey starts to drip down the glass, it will add a hauntingly gorgeous look to your cocktails and give your guests an excuse to lick their fingers.

Pour pear juice and the elderflower liqueur into flute, top off with bubbly and enjoy!
