Ingredients

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200ml water
  • 8 cm ginger, grated
  • 200ml pisco (or white tequila)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric

Peruvian Pisco Sour Cocktail

Pisco is a Peruvian brandy made by distilling fermented grape juice. This spiced up twist on a pisco sour includes oranges, ginger and turmeric.

Method

  1. Heat the sugar, water and ginger together until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer until reduced by half to a syrup. Leave to cool.
  2. Combine everything except the zest and bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well mixed and the egg white has foamed completely. If you don’t have a shaker, use a blender but only add a couple of ice cubes so you don’t make a slushie.
  3. Serve with zest and a few drops of bitters on top.
