|Pisco Sour is the national drink of Peru and one of our all time favourite cocktails. It's a mix of Pisco (a grape brandy), lime juice, egg whites and sweetened with syrup.
The famous Peruvian Pisco Sour was invented in the early 1920s at Morris Bar in Lima by its owner, Victor Vaughen Morris who came up with the idea of adding Angostura bitters and egg whites to Pisco.
Morris Bar used to be located at 847 Calle Boza but it closed down after Victor passed away in 1929.
Pisco Sour has become an institution in Peru and in 2003 it got its own official government holiday: Dia Nacional del Pisco Sour (National Pisco Sour Day) is celebrated on the first Saturday of February.
