So there is an expatriate in Peru who writes a vivid account of her life in a foreign country. She includes recipes for Peruvian food and drink. I've never met this nice lady. But I find her record of recipes and meals interesting to read.
In fact, I'm going to try out one of the cocktails that she's written about when I'm at Tonic today. It's called the Chilcano de Pisco. This cocktail is similar to one that use to be on Tonic's cocktail menu called The Chufflay. I also happen to be a fan of pisco. Cheers!
- 2 oz pisco (Bolivian)
- 1 1/2 oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 oz of simple syrup
- 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
Glassware: highball glass
Pour pisco, lemon juice, simple syrup, and bitters into the glass. Add ice. Shake the ingredients just to get a good mixture. Garnish with a lemon rind.
If you happen to be in Foggy Bottom today, do not be afraid to drop by Tonic and try one of these delicious cocktails.
