This take on the Peruvian pisco sour is flavored with passion fruit

If you love sour cocktails that are packed with flavor, the pisco sour needs to be on your radar! The classic Peruvian beverage features pisco, a type of brandy native to Peru and Chile, as well as traditional sour components like lemon juice and bitters. In this episode of In The Know: Bar Master, mixologist and cocktail expert, Josué Gonzaléz (@josue.allday) shakes up the classic pisco sour by adding a tasty passion fruit twist, as well as a splash of rich chocolate bitters, to make his signature Pisco Passion Sour. 

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Caravedo Pisco  
  • .75 oz Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur 
  • .5 oz lemon juice 
  • .5 oz simple syrup 
  1. 4-6 dashes of chocolate bitters 
  • Egg white 
  • Ice for shaking
  • Lemon peel for garnish (Josué also adds an edible printed garnish made from edible ink and wafer paper) 

Instructions

  1. Pour the simple syrup into a cocktail shaker, followed by lemon juice, passion fruit liqueur, chocolate bitters, egg whites, and pisco. 
  1. Add ice to the cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously until the ingredients blend. Josué notes that it’s extra important to mix properly, because the drink contains an egg white! 
  1. After shaking with the ice, separate the ice from the cocktail, and shake again. 
  2. Strain the cocktail into a large cocktail coupe. As a garnish, rub a lemon peel together over the glass, making sure to get the oils from the peel into the cocktail. Josué also tops off his pisco sour with an edible garnish, made from edible ink and wafer paper. After garnishing, the Pisco Passion Sour is ready to enjoy!
