A classic tangy-sweet Peruvian cocktail made with pisco, simple syrup, lime juice, and egg white and garnished with a few dashes of bitters.


  • 2 ounces pisco
  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Angostura bitters, for garnish


  1. In a cocktail shaker, shake the pisco, simple syrup, lime juice and egg white together for about 15 seconds to foam the egg white.
  2. Add ice to the shaker and shake again for about 30 seconds. Strain cocktail into a glass, allowing foam to collect at the top. Sprinkle foam with 3 to 4 dashes of bitters.


  • To make simple sugar, heat equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Let cool completely before using.
