  1. It's a Peruvian mixed alcoholic drink. That's all I know.

    1. Here is a recipe at drinkboy's site.


      1. Same as a whiskey sour but made with Pisco.

        1. yeah its a traditional peruvian drink made with pisco brandy, lime/lemon, sugar.

          they also make ceviche and when the liquid is left over after eating the fish, they pour in pisco and drink it down...its a manly thing. ;)

            This meal is perfect if you include some good choclo -- the Peruvian word for 'corn'.

          2. Just had one at Bemelmans last month. See link for recipe.
