Pisco Sour (Peruvian style – the easy way!)


  • 1 cup of pisco
  • 1 cup of lime juice (yes, lime, the green and very sour one!)
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 8 table spoons of sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • Angostura bitter (optional)


Traditional Pisco Sour is made by hand in a shaker… one drink at a time… this is nice and kool if you are a bar tender or you have one at your party… but if you are by yourself at home and you want to impress your guests with this fantastic cocktail just use this lazy’s approach and use an electric blender.

Put all the ingredients in the blender except the Angostura bitter.

A practical tip is to use the cups markings of your blender: fill up to ‘1 cup’ of pisco, then up to ‘2 cups’ of lime juice, and then up to ‘3 cups’ of ice cubes. Then just incorporate the egg white and the sugar.

Blend intensively, you will notice a lot of foam will be created, this is all good, that is exactly the idea!


Pour your mix in the glasses of your choice, don’t make them very large as although the cocktails are sweet and easy to drink, they still contain a lot of alcohol.

Just add a few drops of Angostura bitter to each glass. This would add a subtle touch of flavor, but it is optional if you struggle to find this bitter.

Just enjoy… it won’t be long before you are requested to make another round… at this point you will be very happy of having chosen the blender instead of the shaker method 😉
