A modern fusion marrying Peruvian Pisco Sour with the boldness of Italian espresso.

Did you know?

Did you know that the Pisco Sour has a National Day in Peru? It's celebrated on the first Saturday of February!

Dive into the rich tapestry of South American flavors with an electrifying twist. The Espresso Pisco Sour is a modern fusion that swirls the age-old Peruvian tradition of Pisco Sour with the aromatic Italian essence of espresso. This libation's tale embarks in the valleys of Peru where Pisco, a grape brandy, emerged as a cultural emblem, married beautifully with the tang of local limes and the sweetness of syrup. Crossing the Atlantic, it flirted with the robust coffee cultures of Italy, adopting a shot of espresso as an ode to our contemporary love for coffee. The perfect symphony of flavors is achieved with the frothy egg white and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a truly transcendent sip. This drink is meant not just to awaken your spirit with its boldness but to take you on a journey from the terraced vineyards in Peru to a quaint Roman café.

Imagine the bustling streets of Lima meeting the espresso bars of Rome; this is where the Espresso Pisco Sour comes alive. Indulge in this elegant cocktail on a serene afternoon or as a spirited starter for an evening gathering. It's a grand conversation piece, indeed!
