Where can I find Pisco Sours in Chicago?

Does anyone know which bars serve this native Peruvian drink? I know Rosa de Lima (restaurant) serves good ones with your meal, but they are not setup as a bar.

  1. has a recipe i dont know where you would buy it

    1. at you can buy it and theyll ship it, get the recipe and bring it to your bars and if they have the ingredients they should be able to make it im sure unless there is something unusual in it and it sounds like it, never had it

      1. La Pena on Milwaukee near Montrose serves them. It's more Ecuadoran food-wise but they have a broader selection of South American drinks. They have a bar but it's very short on ambience, food's okay.

        1. Rios d'Sudamerica serves them. It's also a restaurant, but at least a little bit more lively than Rosa de Lima. Plus they have a bar you can sit at near the front. I recall Graham Elliott's bar serving a special cocktail with Pisco in it. It's not the classic Pisco Sour, but it was delicious. Since they have Pisco there anyways, I bet they'll make it for you.

          1. The Matchbox on Ogden & Milwaukee makes a very nice pisco sour.
