Peru’s Pisco Sour Day
Peru’s most famous cocktail is by far the Pisco Sour and therefore the people of Peru yearly celebrate the Día del Pisco Sour or, in English, Pisco Sour Day . The event takes places on the first Saturday of February.
The most important ingredient of this delicious Peruvian cocktail is, of course, Pisco. Therefore it is interesting to know a bit more about this typical Peruvian liqueur.
After the Spanish conquered South America, they imported vine plants to Peru in the 15th century. Because they had grapes left that were not good enough for the wine, they decided to use these leftovers in a different product and this is when Pisco got invented.
