CALISCO SOUR

A well traveled palate will recognize this as a nod to the renowned Pisco Sours of South America. Not much has changed with this recipe as we find it to truly be one of the best cocktails suited for our grape spirit, producing a decadent white foam with a beautiful floral and fruity aroma.


In 1915, Victor Morris moved to Lima and founded Morris' Bar which served as a gathering spot for the Peruvian upper class and English speaking ex-pats. The saloon became the center of drink experimentation for Morris. Nicknamed Gringo, he created the Pisco Sour as a riff on the whiskey sour and the libations 100 year old legacy lives on till this day. Calisco honors this synergy of Peruvian and American cultures in the modern age through this dangerously refreshing homage.
