A Break from Disease: February 6 is National Pisco Sour Day in Peru

A fine refreshment after a day of searching for assassin bugs

The Pisco Sour is the National Cocktail of Peru.This is a day when all Peruvians, not to mention all visitors should stop and reflect on the importance of the day.

Here is a recipe taken off of the net:

Ingredients

1/4 cup (2 oz.) pisco
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon pasteurized egg whites

Preparation

In a blender, whirl 3 ice cubes, pisco, sugar, fresh lime juice, and egg whites. Whirl until smooth (you’ll no longer hear the ice cracking against the side of the blender) and serve straight up in a martini glass with a dash of aromatic bitters and a wedge of lime.

If you’re feeling brave you can use regular, rather than pasteurized eggs, but since this is a public health blog there is no way that I can recommend that. Were all the sours I had in Peru made with pasteurized eggs? Hmmmm, maybe that explains something…..
