hello! Que viva el pisco! I'm Mariela from ProefPeru and I'm back with a new blog about Peru. This time I'm going to tell you about “Pisco” the spirit of Peru. Pisco is the national drink in Peru and even has its own World Day. On the fourth Sunday of July we celebrate Pisco Day. This drink is a type of brandy or distilled grape wine that can reach 35%-48% percent alcohol. This Peruvian Pisco sour goldenberry cocktail is therefore for the Delicious Happen fans aged 18+. pisco sour recipe

The clay pots that contain the Pisco.

A piece of history:

In 1551, the first vines from the Canary Islands and southern Spain were brought to Peru. With the intention of making wine in the new colonies. Apart from the production of wine, it was decided to also distill it. Most of the vines brought to Peru were planted in the fertile valleys of Ica, very close to the current city of Pisco. The ethnic group “Piskos” lived there, who, among other things, made clay pots (botijas) in which they fermented their corn liqueur drinks.

The Spaniards decided to use the same “botijas” to store the roasted grape water, which they started to distill and named “Pisco”. The word “Pisco” comes from the Quechua words Pisku, Pisccu, Phishgo, which means bird. That's because this bird was common at that place. Nowadays you can follow training on Pisco at Peru trade (The Trade Commission of Peru) and you can even become a Pisco specialist.

Since I was of legal drinking age, my favorite cocktails have always been Pisco Sour and the algarrobina cocktail. I was so excited when I tried it the first time. Finally I could try the famous drink for myself that I saw everywhere. On my 18th birthday I asked my mother to invite my friends and teach us how to prepare Pisco Sour and algarrobina cocktail. She always recommends adding “un poquito de Pisco” (a little bit of Pisco) or else you can get drunk pretty quickly.

 Nowadays you can find great creations with Pisco and that even worldwide. One of the creations I want to share with you is “Aguaymanto sour”, which is really delicious. Aguaymanto is an Andean fruit that has a bittersweet taste. They are orange in color and are known as a superfood. Known here in the Netherlands under the name goldberry or physalis. Try making it and enjoy!

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.
