The story behind the Pisco Sour

The history of Pisco Sour goes back to the beginning of the 20th century. The exact origin of the cocktail is a matter of debate between Peru and Chile, as both countries claim to have invented it. While Peru claims to have created the Pisco Sour on Hotel Maury in Lima in 1904, Chile claims to have invented it at the Morris Bar in Valparaiso around the same time. Regardless of who invented it, the Pisco Sour has become an iconic cocktail loved by people all over the world.

The cocktail was originally created as a variation of another well-known cocktail, Whiskey Sour. Instead of whiskey, the bartenders used Pisco, which was abundantly available in both Peru and Chile. The combination of Pisco, lime juice, sugar syrup and egg white created a refreshing and well-balanced cocktail that quickly became popular in both countries.

Over the years, Pisco Sour has evolved and adapted to different taste preferences. There are now a host of variations and twists on the classic recipe, adding different ingredients such as fruit, spices and herbs. But whichever version you choose to make, it's important to understand the basic principles behind the Pisco Sour to achieve the perfect balance of flavor and aroma.
